A lecture by Ian Francis, Stuart Holmes and Bruce Yardley in March 2022 inspired me to try to find out more about the geology of the Lake District and surrounding area. No new research here, just me trying to learn.

All 'specimens' were picked up from the path side, nothing has been extracted from bedrock or elsewhere.

Glandamackan valley between Skiddaw and Blencathra illustrates some features of the geology of the area. Taken from Francis et al. Walked in April 2022.
