SM9440 : Dolerite Columnar Basalt at Pen Anglas

taken 12 years ago, near to Llanwnda, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Dolerite Columnar Basalt at Pen Anglas
Dolerite Columnar Basalt at Pen Anglas
The tip of Pen Anglas shows perhaps the best display of a cross section of columnar basalt in dolerite in the UK, much better formed than the Giant's causeway in my opinion. Not shown is that this exposure is undercut and drops into the sea. The structure at the top right is the OS trig point.
