Limestone country near Street Gate
Limestone country near Street Gate
This may be classic limestone country, but it isn't quite that straightforward. Much of the limestone here is covered by glacial drift, whilst the exposed blocks in the foreground appear to be glacial erratics. In the shallow valley to the right, surface water appears as the underlying basement rocks reach the surface.
