Tufa Screen at Janet's Foss
Tufa Screen at Janet's Foss
Low water flow facilitated this close up of the tufa screen at Janet's Foss. The information board explains that moss growing on the rock becomes calcified with limestone (calcium carbonate) deposited from the water, then more moss grows, and so on. The tufa is extremely fragile and should not be touched.
