Saturday Photo Hunt - Curvy



IMG_3125



This weeks theme is CURVY and I was tempted to post a picture of myself, as that is what I am. Instead I have posted a picture that I took on this walk Baslow Edge.
These stones were all over the place and I just couldn't think what they were, so a little research later i found out they were in fact abandoned Mill Stones.
This is because this area was quarried for the stone to make them and they were probably abandoned due to breakage during the process. So this one could be hundreds of years old.

It also could of been used for this other uses.

  41. Excellent! Presumably the mill stones were abandoned before they were put into use. No sign of a mill around there! You might possibly be interested in a post from a Norwegian blog RennyBA's Terella about Swedish millstones.

    Congratulations on being Site of the Week:) Well deserved!
