Stanner Rocks, a Gateway to Wales: and ancient Pembridge

Stanner Rocks, a Gateway to Wales: and ancient Pembridge

Stanner Rocks mark a point on the boundary to Wales as Henry VIII ordained it, and their towering precipices, hundreds of feet high, guard a pass leading into the Principality. The volcanic character of the rocks has greatly interested geologists, and botany has been enriched by the trees and shrubs growing on their sides, and the rare flowers that bloom in the crevices. Pembridge (top) bears the signs of its antiquity in its church with the detached belfry. The structure in the foreground is an old timber market-house.
