|Description ||Langdale Axe Factory, Cumbria, NY274072
I ventured up Langdale to take some pictures of hand axes or fragments in situ. Having forgotten to take ropes and a parachute I thought better of it and this picture of the scree will have to do.
You get stunning views & a real sense of the danger that prehistoric man must have felt looking for the right stones.
|Amazing place - so high, so remote and so difficult to get to even today.
Yet the stone here was so precious that it was used to make polished, high status hand axes that were transported all over Neolithic Britain. (see main entry for futher information.)|
|Oh my god! It makes me dizzy just looking at this, rich32! Glad you got down in one piece! (My stomach actually turned over when I took a second look!)|

|Wow, that's quite a breath-taking shot! though i can very easily imagine the stunning scenery to be taken in from the top. to me this pic screams "adrenalin rush!"|
| NICK- Look at this one....!!! It still makes me feel giddy.|
