Solstice Wanderings in Cumbria – Slate

Little Langdale -Tilberthwaite – Cathedral Quarry 20.06.2019

.. Here a slate as hard as steel,

Tubular moulding around the keel

Of plated rock, and here a shale

That flakes and peels to finger nail.

The stream divides, the waves obey,

Now charitable in decay;

And children lie in sighing beds –

A river floor above their heads;

From The Seven Rocks by Norman Nicholson
