When you arrive (nearly) at the top of Castle Crag and look around at the disused slate quarry there are about 20-30 slate ‘monuments’ that have been erected. No one seems to know why they are there, but they are both striking and eerie at the same time. A poignant reminder of the quarry men who made the daily trek up the fell.
