    Both my parents loved nature. My mother liked music, art and history. My father liked science, so I grew up seeing things from both sides.

    Once the glaciers came this far south. Geology students come to see the "rockstones" in what is now a neighbour's garden, which were brought down from way up north by the glaciers. Some of the farmers have "upside down land" where the glaciers dumped heavy wet clay on top of the chalk, and their valleys are much drier than the hilltops.

    Geology but particularly landforms are really interesting. The landscape here is full of features like drumlins, meltwater channels, morriane and raised beaches. Evidence of the last circ glaciers abound on the northern and eastern slopes of the fells.

    Oh yes I remember it well - though the people I knew mostly lived around the Borders, Brampton, Langholm, Haltwhistle, Alston area rather than the Lakes with all the Herdwicks. Fascinating going up Teesdale and back down Weardale, or vice versa.
