Beacon Hill, Leicestershire 3/10

On an outcrop of rock on Beacon Hill, there appears to be a great face, called ‘The Old Man Of The Beacon’, in the rocks, it's looking to the left towards the same view as my posting on Monday.

Oh, good! Let us clamber about here for a while!
Brian Walbey: The rocks are covered with children climbing up and down at the weekends.
On distingue bien son nez.
Brian Walbey: It looks lkke a proper one doesn't it.
Nice, I love places like this Brian. Wherever they are.
Brian Walbey: Having worked for the quarrying industry for over 25 years, and being interested in Geology a bit, I find things like tbis very interesting.
He has a very pointy nose! I'd love to boulder around on that... perhaps Ray would join me. He'll have to wear a helmet though!

This looks to be a wonderful viewpoint
Brian Walbey: It's the best angle to get a reasonable shot of the 'Old Man'
And on a sunny day like this, it's a fabulous view, Brian. I hope nothing happens to this chap in the years to come. Our Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire fell/crumbled in 2003. He even had a postal stamp: https://blog.genealogybank.com/n-h-s-old-man-of-the-mountain-collapsed-10-years-ago-today.html
Brian Walbey: I guess one day, in centuries to come, Mother Nature will wear the nose away just as it sadly did with your 'Man of the Mountain', nothing stays the same for long in natural terms.

It looks like a face, Brian. Sticking his nose out..
I like this kind of rocks.
Brian Walbey: Strange how from straight on one doesn't see this at all.

I can see his nose smile
Brian Walbey: Perhaps he should be called 'Mr.Pointy Nose'

I can recognise a face of a sleeping man!
Brian Walbey: Strange how from straight on one doesn't see this at all.
The old man has a very pointed nose!

A rugged rock around which a ragged rascal could happily run
Brian Walbey: The ragged rascals do at weekends, the kids love climbing over the rocks at Beacon Hill.
