Edale Geomorphology in the Rain

It turned out to be a rather wet and misty day in the Peak District today, which rather hindered our views, though the cloud did fortuitously clear momentarily as we stood on Hollins Cross, affording this view of the Mam Tor Landslide. The rain continued to fall heavily, though, so our appreciation of the Coalside Landslide, and utilisation of the home-made inclinometer, were not what they might have been. Nevertheless, it seemed that everyone enjoyed the day out, and we all learned about the origin of the name Peak District, if nothing else.
