Hodge Close Quarry

Sometimes I forget that the Lake District is largely a manmade environment. This is Hodge Close, a spectacular hole in the ground the result of quarrying for slate. It is said to be 100m deep of which a half is below the level of the pond. An overnight dump of snow making the whole scene magical. The rusty piece of ironwork in the foreground is the jib of an old crane.
