The Orton Fells, located to the east of Lake District, in Cumbria County, in England, is an area of remarkable geology. This vast area bounded by the small villages of Orton, Great Asby, Little Asby, Crosby Ravensworth and Crosby Garret, contains some of the most fascinating limestone outcrops, scars and pavements in Great Britain. Limestone pavements are areas of flat, exposed and weathered limestone rock surfaces. Abrasion by glaciers as well as natural weathering of the limestone has created deep fissures, which has broken the pavement into blocks that look as if they were sculpted by human hands. Most of these pavements were damaged by mining over the centuries. The Great Asby Scar, near the village of Great Asby, and Orton Scars, near Orton, contain some of the best remaining examples in Britain.
