Britain turns yellow and gold


From North to South, East to West, Britain on a glorious Summer’s day is an absolute joy! Whether travelling the countryside on foot, by car, bus or train a wonderful view is never far away. I showcased a little of the variety in rich colours you can see in the Rainbow Britain post previously. I thought it would be nice to concentrate here on one of the colours. A colour that is very much in season and abound everywhere. The colour of happiness – yellow.

It is hard to escape it and it is wonderful to see. Swathes of yellow fields of rapeseed and buttercups. Wheatfields growing and the busyness of farmers and insects of all colours at work. Britain is far from just a green and pleasant land, it is a bounty of colourful joy, and all quietly and naturally helps to make landmarks and historical settings more magical for the visitor.

    In the Yorkshire Dales we’ve got an extra splash of yellow – from 5th July – 5th September there are over 300 Lost Sheep in Yellow Jerseys for visitors to spot! The Lost Sheep are in all shapes, sizes and materials, and are “hidden” all over the Dales (some are unmissable, others more discreet). Most of them will make you smile! Visitors need to spot just three, then report their sightings on for the chance to win one of over 150 great prizes! Multiple entries are permitted and there’s a star prize for the person who spots the most Lost Sheep in Yellow Jerseys.
