Comment
The Billing is a local landmark, seen here under a blanket of snow.
 
 
'The unusual name 'billing' is derived from 'bill' meaning highest point and ing meaning field or meadow. There is a trigonometric point on top of The Billing and superb views across the middle Aire valley towards the Emley Moor mast, also towards the Wharfe valley and Vale of York'.
