Here, YEP photographer Simon Hulme has captured some beautiful shots at Newmillerdam, near Wakefield.

The country park is a designated local nature reserve and features a central lake with a perimeter pathway surrounded by coniferous woodland.

The lake is an important breeding ground for wildlife and at this time of year you can see mute swans, mallards and coots, while in the woodland you can expect to spot grey squirrels.

The lakeside path is very popular with walkers and joggers and there are a number of way-marked trails for walkers, joggers, cyclists and horse riders. This weekend’s weather is set to be chilly but sunny - why not wrap up in your woollies and get out there?
