NY7620 : Swindale Beck and Crag

taken 7 years ago, 3 km from Hilton, Cumbria, Great Britain

Swindale Beck and Crag
Swindale Beck and Crag
Swindale Beck at this point is fairly low in volume since much of it sinks into joints in the limestone further up the gill. The crag is sandstone, broken and a luminous lime green colour due to lichen. On our approach a large bird (owl or buzzard?) flew off from one of its ledges.
