Outcrops above Backstean Gill
Outcrops above Backstean Gill
Overlooking Backstean Gill - high above on the lip of the valley, is this small group of weathered outcrops of gritstone.
The definitive map marks this place as Sandstones. Perhaps not a misnomer as gritstone is a form of hard course grained sandstone.
