Description:
This is a view of the sun disappearing from one of the most beautiful landscapes in the County of Shropshire known as the Stiperstones. The Stiperstones is a spectacular 10km ridge in south-west Shropshire, its unmistakable rugged outline rising to 536m above sea level. The Reserve covers 485 ha and lies within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Parts of the reserve are protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the area is also a Special Area of Conservation under the European Habitats Directive. The Stiperstones is important for rocks deposited some 480 million years ago, during the Ordovician period, including Stiperstones Quartzite, which forms the ridge. Lead has been mined in the area since Roman times and more recently zinc, barytes and calcite have been extracted, too. The legacy of mining is still much in evidence, although extraction finally ceased in the 1950s. The Reserve provides a fantastic combination of geological, landscape and wildlife features, along with wild, dramatic scenery and a wealth of stories about local myths and folklore. With such breathtaking - and spooky - scenery, it's hardly surprising that the area abounds in legends and myths. The best-known of these is that of the Devil's Chair. The Devil's Chair is the highest - and the most imposing of these outcrops. According to legend, the rocks of the Devil's Chair were brought there by the Devil himself. www.jimroberts.co.uk www.flickriver.com/photos/jimborobbo/popular-interesting/ All my photos and images are copyrighted to me although you are welcome to use them for non commercial purposes as long as you give credit to myself.
