Daniel Gumb's cave, near Cheesewring Quarry
Daniel Gumb's cave, near Cheesewring Quarry
The dark "cave" in the centre of the photo was home to a stone cutter and mathematician called Daniel Gumb who lived the life of a hermit here until he died in 1776. Some of his geometric diagrams are chiselled into the top of the granite slab that forms the roof of this hermitage. The posts in the background are part of a fence around the Cheesewring Quarry, and up on Stowes Hill is the Cheesewring itself.
