Limestone pavement, Clawthorpe Fell National Nature Reserve
The footpath north of Clawthorpe enters an area of limestone pavement which includes some remarkably large and smooth slabs - almost like poured concrete. There are examples of shallow runnels such as the one shown here, formed by a combination of chemical solution of the limestone and erosion.
