Cliffs of Millook Haven

Cliff coast

GB |

Public

Source: Geology Page

The coastal section through north Cornwall into Devon that runs to Bude and Hartland Point contains a spectacularly folded series of inter-bedded sandstones and shales originally deposited deeply under water. The cliffs at Millock Haven are a great site for getting to grips with these deformed rocks. The folds are recumbent and have a characteristic "chevron" kinky shape that tends to form when strongly layered rocks are buckled.
