This article describes the geological factors which have contributed to the formation of the unique bedrock geology and soils of the metamorphosed limestones on Widdybank and Cronkley fells in Upper Teesdale. The survival of the relict arctic–alpine flora is probably directly related to the distinctive geology of the area.
