Layered sandstone boulder
This rock has thinner than usual strata and could be split easily for making roof slates. Quarries existed high up on Hatterall Hill and I guess these were for extracting stone for making roofs. Ordinary building stone was readily available down in the valley and it would have been foolish to transport it from high up.
