Scenes from Garrigill - 4/4 "Under Ashgill Force"

It is possible to walk behind the waterfall and remain dry where the sedimentary rocks laid down when the area was covered by the "Midlands Sea" can be seen. Geologists across the world refer to this type of rock formation as the Ashgill Event. When this photo was taken it followed a period of relatively dry weather - After prolonged heavy rain the scene is dramtically changed.
