Of late I have found myself captivated with the rocks beneath our feet. Prompted by my latest book on the train
I’ve started taking more notice of what’s under foot.
By exploring his past through the quarries and mines of his childhood Ted Nield piqued my interest in our local geology and how it made Kendal the little Auld Grey Town that it is. While Kendal looks north toward the hills of the Lake District – ancient eroded volcanoes which erupted around 450 million (!) years ago – Kendal Fell sits on an area of limestone and you see it everywhere. As you walk out the door
down the lane
wrapped in moss
creating pretty lanes
funneling chimney stacks
To think that Kendal’s signature stone was formed millions of years ago in shallow seas when what is now England was south of the Equator … amazing!
Quick before I go. As I was typing today’s blog I had a little visitor. He popped in the back door to escape a heavy downpour.
Stayed for a while and when the clouds had gone hopped out into the foliage.
Until we meet again, ribitttttttttt. Moke
