Andy Who When and Where?

Over there, past Lancashire over the fell and north towards Yorkshire, not far from where we are building, is Bentham

And this small British town has an Andy Goldsworthy connection.  It turns out he spent his early days there in Yorkshire and says he learned how to 'gap' walls as a youth. It doesn't seem like a very inspiring place actually. Am I  allowed to say that? hmm.

However not far from Bentham is this amazing rock. Its called the 'Great Stone of Fourstones' and it's big! And it's even bigger when you climb to the top. No one knows the story of who carved the steps or when. Who knows, it may have been Andy.
