Summary:The location and morphology of moraine ridges and mounds of inferred Loch Lomond Stadial (LLS) age at Fordingdale, Swindale and Wet Sleddale, are described, with evidence for other depositional landforms in Fordingdale. These moraine ridges and mounds associated with LLS glaciers show that LLS glaciation was more widespread than previously thought, and represent net outlet glaciers of plateau icefields. Three penecontemporaneous depositional landforms lie adjacent to moraines in Fordingdale, and are coeval with, or younger than, the LLS glacier. [R.K.H.]
