Grinding stones at Castlecrag

25 February 2021

Grinding the abundant sandstone is a favourite lunch time activity of all classes here at Castlecrag. Children love making 'fairy dust', paint and colours as they pound the rocks to dust and then mix them with water. The ochres, reds and browns of our local sandstone are very beautiful. It is also a very rhythmical and satisfying experience, and one that can also be hard work!
