Rock around Aymestrey

 ... not following a mid-20th century music trail, but a circular walk from Aymestrey over the ridge to Croft Castle and up to the Croft Ambrey hill fort, to see what the rocks of the area can tell us about the distant past, and how they have been utilised by man. The rocks have left a distinctive mark on the landscape since their formation over 400 million years ago. Fossils in the quarries tell of life in a shallow sea in the southern tropics. Quarries in these rocks were a source of building stone as well as to be burnt for lime. The famous geologist, Murchison, used the rock sequence around Aymestrey to name a significant part of the geological time scale in his book defining the ‘Silurian System’ in 1839. Though on recognised footpaths, including part of the Mortimer Trail, the walk is rough underfoot in places, has some steep gradients and a few stiles.
