The geology of The Wrekin is most interesting as it is made of volcanic rock yet is not itself a volcano. It is situated near to the Church Stretton Fault which may well have been responsible for its creation.
The primary igneous rock on the Wrekin is rhyolite which has a pinkish colour and is usually banded as it is a slow cooling viscous extrusive rock.
