Page 161:-
A large mass of similar composition appears in the bed and on the banks of the river Lune at Kirkby Lonsdale. Its dip indicates that it should pass under the limestone which appears at a little distance; but, in that case, how it came to contains nodules of limestone I am at a loss to understand. Something of the same kind also appears in the river Mint, from two to three miles above Kendal; where it may be seen to rest upon the blue rock; and wherever the subjacent rock can be seen, it is always deeply coloured by the iron of the conglomerate.
