Grouse grit on Shuttleworth Moor
One concrete block probably contained medicated grit to treat parasites, the other block contains un-medicated grit. Grit is used to aid digestion of the heather. Game keepers were much in evidence on the moors in preparation for the start of the shooting season in August.
