Time worn millstone grit - Bowland
This is the top of the sphinx head Whitendale Hanging Stones on the Bowland fells. Note the crust like Crottle lichen on the boulder top. On the right of the picture on the far sky line Pendle summit can just be seen.

The millstone grit boulders put
time into perspective.
The rain of ages past scouring
its timeless sculpture on stone
that was aeon's ago once as soft
as rain. Tom Howard
