Whaw Scars and fields around Seal Houses
Mixture of bedrock and glacial action has left behind scars along the valley side.
The bedrock varies from Five Yard Limestone near the top of the scars to Argillaceous Bioclastic limestones, sandstones, mudstones, siltstones and rare coals. This area has been worked by man in the 18th & 19th centuries for building stone and lime for the land.
