Stone dyke meets a limestone outcrop
Stone dyke meets a limestone outcrop
The workmanship of the dyke builders has to be admired when you see sights like this. The grazing in the foreground is typical upland limestone pasture which grows on a very thin layer of soil (50-150mm thick) on the limestone. It is difficult to manage, can easily be overstocked, especially in dry weather in summer. The perennial flowers are just starting to bloom up here.
