Stiperstones

The Stiperstones is an impressive ridge running NNE/SSW in the west of the county. Along the ridge are a number of dramatic exposures. These are made of a rock known as Stiperstones Quartzite..... lead has been mined here since Roman times....the crystalline rock sparkles in the sun.

This rock was formed around 510 million years ago,give or take a few weeks ..yeah right.. when this would have been a white sandy beach or shallow sea.....I wonder what was on the beach then....there has just gota be someone wanting money for something lol..


other sizes: small medium large original
