Up the Lune valley, on the way, passed HORNBY CASTLE.

The village of DENT

Six miles along Dentdale is Dent station, on the Settle to Carlisle line.

One of the many viaducts on the line.

In the distance, the most famous, RIBBLEHEAD.

A marvellous feat of Victorian engineering.

Frank,

I'm just wondering what archaeological society has been putting all those test pits in around the bottom of the viaduct.

Brian,
It does look like that could be what they are, (or maybe the navvies building the viaduct didn't have portaloos). I believe they are features of the limestone as they are all over the top of Ingleborough also. Someone with a knowledge of geology may explain.

I think that these are probably sink or swallow holes. Caused by water dissolving the limestone and thus bringing about the collapse of the bedrock.
