This dramatic video shows large swaths of devastated moorland after a huge blaze broke out in the hills near Huddersfield.
Drone footage taken from the skies above the moors shows huge areas of scorched earth and vegetation ravaged by flames.
The camera captures a sea of green where groups of trees cluster on one side of the hills where the fire didn’t spread.
But in the affected areas almost everything has been destroyed, with only the blackened residue of the blaze and ash remaining.
Firefighters were called to the huge moor fire, in Buckton Quarry near Greenfield, just before 9pm on Sunday, May 8.
The recording was taken by 29-year-old Ryan Curtis, from Carrbrook, who has been documenting the landscapes around his home village for the last year.
He said: “When I saw what the fire had done to the moor I couldn’t believe it. It was shocking. There’s almost nothing left in the areas where the blaze raged – it’s just a huge mass of black land.
“It’s going to take years to grow back.”
Ryan had returned to get the footage after first filming the blaze as it raged across the moors when it first started.
His remarkable clip shows flames climbing up the moors as almost the entire horizon appears to be glowing and on fire.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue service said that the cause of the fire had still not been established.
