The Great Stone Of Fourstones


On our way home from our break in Scotland today we spotted a fantasic stone on Slaidburn Road in the Forest Of Bowland...
Slaidburne

There was a parking place nearby with an information board and The Great Stone had steps cut into the side for climbing....


There was an amazing view from the top!



And if you look to the extreme left of this last picture, you can just about see the bottom 1 of 4 shelves at the back which you can lower yourself down and then jump the 3 1/2 feet from the last one to the ground. 

But I wouldn't advise it.....because I tried it today and now my left knee is considerably larger and sorer than the right one....and I'm feeling a bit of a div for not listening to my own words "don't do anything dangerous"....doh!

  1. Oh dear, I did wonder how you hurt your knee. We've been up there loads but have never seen that! I'll look out for it though.
