Strangely coloured rocks at Porth Saint
Strangely coloured rocks at Porth Saint
The cliffs here are a mixture of grey, white, yellow and pink rocks, all in a confusing jumble. A gentle syncline can be seen across the cliff, whilst the pinkish rock would appear to have been stained by iron rich fluid emerging at a fault line.
