DescriptionThis great ruckle of boulders marks where the River Greta flows into the River Tees and on to the north sea. Its quite hard to work-out what the artists writers and poets all got so excited about but of course in the mid-to late nineteenth century elaboration and artistic license were quite common and probably pretty safe as only a tiny percentage of folks would ever get to compare reality with the often idealised creations offered up by the publishers etc. As both these rivers are prone to flooding the composition of the boulder-field regularly changes shape, and to be fair the area is generally quite pretty in an understated rural sort of way, though I suspect the tourist heyday in these parts took a severe dint when Wordsworth and Coleridge got to work on the lake district.
