Millook Haven, Poundstock, Cornwall. 1913

A view of the beach at Millook Haven showing the contorted strata in the cliffs. There is a figure standing next to a small boat in the foreground. In 2014, the Geological Society launched a list of 100 Great Geosites across the UK and Ireland. The cliffs at Millook Haven were chosen for the "spectacularly folded series of inter-bedded sandstones and shales originally deposited deeply under water. The folds are recumbent and have a characteristic chevron shape that tends to form when strongly layered rocks are buckled". Photographer: Herbert Hughes
