Scar Hill

Stream erosion has created an area on the side of this hill where the top soil and moor has disappeared. Revealed are the Millstone Grit which is a feature of the geology of the area. Millstone Grit takes its name from one principle use of this hard material used in the mill stones to grind corn. However, it is an almost ubiquitous building material being the main constituent of dry stone walls which criss-cross the moors.
