A dry stone wall in the Cumbrian Mountains of England, very near to the top of the Wrynose Pass.
(Wikipedia) A dry-stone wall, also known as a dry-stone dyke, drystane dyke, dry-stone hedge, or rock fence is a wall that is constructed from stones without any mortar to bind them together. As with other dry stone structures, the wall is held up by the interlocking of the stones. Such walls are used in building construction, as field boundaries, and on steep slopes as retaining walls for terracing.
(Wikipedia) The Wrynose Pass is a mountain pass in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England between the Duddon Valley and Little Langdale.
There is a single-track motor road over the pass, which is one of the steepest roads in England, with gradients up to 1 in 3. Its name comes from ‘pass of the stallion.’ The road continues over Hardknott Pass and goes on to Eskdale.
The pass separates the Furness Fells from the Bowfell-Crinkle Crags massif.
At the top of the Wrynose Pass is the Three Shire Stone, marking the meeting point of the historic counties of Cumberland, Lancashire and Westmorland.
At the bottom of Wrynose is Fell Foot Farm, a 17th century, Grade II listed, National Trust property.
