Stalagtites

Find of the Day!

I'd heard that there were Stalagtites growing in the cellar of this pub but never thought I'd get to see them. When we were there earlier today, my mate asked the landlord if we could see them, and he allowed two of us to go down and have a look. This is one of the pictures I took. They are incredibly fragile, about 7ft long, still dripping and forming, I'm so glad I've seen these.
The Anchor Inn, in Salterforth, is home to centuries-old stalactites and stalagmites in the cellars which attract people from across the region keen to see the unusual display.

Part of the original inn can still be seen in the cellars and, due to them being undisturbed for well over 200 years, there is now an incredible display.

The amazing formations have been created by water dripping through limestone flooring in the cellar.

The hostelry is a regular haunt for tourists and boat cruisers.

As well as the spectacular water formations in the cellar, the pub also boasts views of some stunning scenery.
