NY2516 : The Bowder Stone

near to Grange, Cumbria, Great Britain

The Bowder Stone
The Bowder Stone
One of Lakeland's most famous landmarks. Most visitors assume the huge boulder tumbled down from the surrounding fells, but the Bowder Stone is not actually a local rock and is a result of glacial action, most probably being carried to Borrowdale from Scotland during the last Ice Age.
