Twisted hawthorn, Newbiggin Crags
Twisted hawthorn, Newbiggin Crags
Much of the rain that falls on these extensive limestone uplands sinks straight into the cracks and fissures in the limestone. This, the thin soils and exposed location, all restrict tree growth creating these twisted and stunted specimens. Today, the view across to the western Dales fells is excellent.
