Close to the Dent Fault on Stone Rigg
The Dent Fault (discovered by Adam Sedgwick, a Cambridge professor of Geology and native of Dent) is responsible for the dramatic differences in scenery on both sides of Barbondale. In the foreground, Stone Rigg is composed of Carboniferous limestone and in the background, the steep slopes are of much older Silurian slates. The near hill is Middleton Fell with Helms Knott and the Howgill Fells beyond.
