Harpur Hill-04

10-Harpur Hill-04

As the hill is composed mainly of limestone it was mined for many years for its stone. Because of man’s interference parts where water accumulates have a high Ph level of 11. This makes parts of the hillside void of any vegetation or animal life. Pictured is a pool of recent rainwater containing recently spawned tadpoles.
