‘Ingleborough from Whitescar’ by Martin Williamson (©cobbybrook)

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


A view from the Whitescar limestone pavement towards the distant peak of Ingleborough, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Limestone pavements were formed in the ice age – the movement of ice scraping the top surface of the limestone flat and stripped bare of any vegetation. As the ice melted, the melt-water cut its way through the limestone forming a multitude of narrow, deep fissures and leaving behind blocks of flat-topped limestone. The fissures are called ‘Grykes’ and the flat-topped limestone blocks are ‘Clints’. Rare plants colonise the micro-environments within the grykes and at Whitescar a twisted old tree has rooted deep in a fissure, pushing its way to the surface.

    your choice of colour is so original. A beautiful interpretation of these rock formations…. a real sod to walk over tho!! x

  • Thank you as always Linda – much appreciated my friend! They do indeed make for difficult walking, especially in wet or icy conditions, but these formations are definitely worth seeing… x
