Glacial boulders & cairn against Cumbrian mountains
Glacial erratic boulders and a cairn on Holme Park Fell, South Cumbria, seen in profile against the violet-hued Cumbrian Fells - the mountains of the Lake District.
On Farleton Knott and the surrounding Holme Park Fell, the erratic boulders are of the same material as the limestone pavements on which they sit. They were transported some distance by a glacier during the last Ice Age, smoothed and rounded by the ice before being deposited on another limestone outcrop.
