Mysterious stone structures have been seen in the Lake District.
Mysterious stone structures appear in Lake District hills. The artwork has been created by an unknown artist. One of the structures, circular in shape, frames the Borrowdale Valley. Reports say that the artist appears to be a “very talented and patient person”. It remains unclear who the person creating the artwork is, although locals have likened them to Banksy, who still remains anonymous although being famous countrywide. Mountaineering businessman Carl Halliday first spotted the work at the beginning of May.
He told reporters “I usually have mixed feelings about man-made structures like this in a natural setting – as climbers, we practise a minimal impact approach. But I have to say that this was different.
It seemed sensitive to the existing environment and complemented the already stunning views. It seemed to be constructed from local slate and, after all, the fells aren’t completely natural – with dry stone walls stretching for miles.” Carl, a professional mountaineering instructor, continued by saying “Because it’s located high on a mountain crag, I’ve purposely been a little vague with people about its exact location.
Although it would be possible to access it from above, and without climbing the long rock route that we climbed first, I wouldn’t want to be the person responsible for encouraging walkers and general visitors to seek it out. The steep ground around the stone circle, even if not climbing up to it, is technical, and for non-mountaineers, it wouldn’t be appropriate.”
The Borrowdale Institute, who run the town hall, took to Twitter to say “Do we have our very own #Banksy in Borrowdale? These works of art are turning up on fells and Crags all around here, not sure how many there are, a very talented patient individual has been very busy in lockdown. Whoever you/they are please carry on, we want more.”
