Concrete Making, Grandma's Corner

Concrete Steps

A couple of weeks ago we were in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and we walked the Ingleton Waterfall Trail. Visiting a series of waterfalls (including Snow Falls in the picture) involves a lot of up and down. In some places there was an easy gradient in others we had to scramble over rocks. We stopped at one point for an ice-cream and the lady told us they had to carry their stock in rucksacks along the path to the cabin. When I saw these concrete steps I was relieved I didn’t have to scramble down the hillside, but I wondered how they got the concrete to the site, and how they managed to make such blocks in the middle of nowhere.
