Limestone outcrops by Birkett Hill
Limestone outcrops by Birkett Hill
For those of us used to the relatively flat bedded limestones of the Yorkshire Dales, these outcrops come as something of a surprise as they are steeply angled and in close proximity to both shales and sandstones. The reason must be the nearby northern extension to the Dent fault which runs along the western margins of the central Pennines.
