in Places of Geologic Significance

The Great Stone of Fourstones This is an absolute cracker! It is HUGE and you can see it as you drive along the moor from Bentham. Fantastic views over to Ingleborough; climb up the carved steps and sit a-top this huge piece of stone and just gaze upon the view. A big old lump of rock in the middle of a very bleak and often featureless moor which makes it very hard to miss!
