Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Autumn colour by Clapham Beck
Approaching Robin Proctor Scars . . .
and looking across the fields . . .
to Norber Erratics
Kath investigates . . .
some large boulders . . .
while Phil spots a clump of mass
Looking south . . .
and zooming in on another large boulder
This boulder sits on a limestone platform . . .
while this one is supported by . . .
blocks of limestone
It's worth keeping your eyes down . . .
as Phil spots a colourful fungus
The star of the show!
The erratics are glacially-transported Silurian sandstone boulders
and were deposited at Norber on Carboniferous limestone when the ice melted about 15,000 years ago
Another fungus spotted amongst the rocks
Making our way to . . .
Long Scar . . .
taken in both directions
Moughton Scars . . .
a large expanse of limestone pavement
We descend through the gap . . .
in the limestone pavement . . .
making our way over the stile . . .
where a single tree still holds onto the rock
