Norber Erratics

Erratics are rocks that have been transported by glacier, and left behind when the ice has melted some distance from the place they started. The Norber erratics are a fascinating group of sandstone rocks perched on limestone in the Yorkshire Dales, on the southern slopes of Ingleborough. They can only be reached by foot and there are various routes that can be taken to get to them. Most start from the village of Austwick. There's an easy circular route from Clapham to Austwick, to the erratics and then back to Clapham. I'm intrigued by the name: What are these? T'aint nobbut erratics... The post code is for Austwick.
