The amazing Geology of our coast. Crackington Haven to Hartland Point.



I did a seabird survey on Tuesday from Padstow up the North Cornish coast and over the Devon border up to Welcombe & Marsland .

I'd not done that far section before by sea and whilst I knew the Crackington bit of coast had some spectacular geology I wasn't really prepared for the splendours that followed as we made our way on towards Hartland.

There must have been some incredible forces of nature at work judging by all the folds put into the rock strata.

Here are a few of the highlights, the lighting was a bit flat but I think you'll get the idea and maybe want to explore it yourselves.
