The Bowder Stone, Keswick

The Bowder Stone, Keswick:

The Bowder Stone is a 2000 ton, house-sized lump of rock that stands more than 10 metres high and about 30 metres in circumference.

It is roughly 400-million years old and sits precariously on one edge.

In 2019, a new metal ladder was installed so visitors can climb to the top.

Controversy surrounds the origin of this rock.

Some say it came from the fells above, others believe it has been deposited by a glacier during the Ice Age.

The Bowder Stone site is very a popular site for rock climbers, ‘bouldering’ or climbing without ropes is practised here.
