Erosion from 500 years of footsteps.

Erosion from 500 years of footsteps.
One of the staircases in the ruins of the 16th Century Wycoller Hall, worn down by more than half a millenium of constant use. Wycoller Hall was the inspiration for "Ferndean Manor" in the novel "Jane Eyre", written by Charlotte Bronte who lived with her family in the nearby town of Haworth.

Nice capture. Fascinating to think how many people must have walked up and down these steps over so many years.
