Centenary Stones commemorate the Centenary of the National Trust in the Lake District

Tens of thousands of walkers will have looked at and wondered at the modern sculpture set in Calfclose Bay, placed there to commemorate the Centenary of the National Trust in the Lake District. Carved out of a boulder of volcanic rock from the Borrowdale Valley, the unusual design represents ten segments across ten rings, a century. The high range of lake levels means a variation from total submergence to standing marooned high on the shore. A memorial plaque is set beside the path.
