Humphrey Head Point
Humphrey Head Point
The limestone rocks which make up Humphrey Head disappear to the south under the vast tract of sand which is Morecambe Bay. These sands are the remains of a huge 'sandur' (an Icelandic term used by geomorphologists to describe the outwash plain downstream of a glacier or ice-cap) formed to the south of the ice-cap occupying the Cumbrian massif during the last Ice Age.
