From Seatoller Fell. About twelve years ago I went on a tour of the slate mines and they told us they mine rather than quarry as it doesn't scar the landscape. So what the hell are they doing quarrying up here again? What's the point of having a national park if this is allowed? On to Little Round How.Wycombe Wanderer27/10/2019
