Lulworth Cove – for geology enthusiasts

No comments

The coastline in the South of England is very pretty.  Joel and I were lucky to have visited this World Heritage Site in separate occasions – both geological field trips.  The dramatic landscape is truly a ‘must-visit’ for geology enthusiasts.

There are also fossils, and preserved dinosaur footprints.

And the nitty-gritty: faults, hanging wall, foot wall, slickensides, etc.

The rugged coast line,  the rolling hills of the English country side, the charming B&Bs, and the English pubs to cap long days of field work makes this place well worth the visit.
