Blackstone, Askrigg Moor, Wensleydale
Blackstone, or Blackstone Edge, is an area of desolate high fells, all above 580 m, 3 km NW of Askrigg. There are the remains of some shallow pits from documented 19th century coal mining as well as lead mining evidence.
Access is by a well worn bridleway which leads safely, avoiding the many swallow holes, to a beacon at the northern most part of the gridsquare.
