Clarke Head

Synopsis: The cliffs west of Clarke Head bear witness to the tectonic power that brought continents together to form the ‘One Earth’ called Pangea. The geological structures, which have drawn geologists to ponder their origin, look like they might have been imagined by Dr. Suess. Even for the non-specialist, a walk along the cliffs and sea stacks of Clarke Head is unforgettable.

Geological Formation: The ‘Clarke Head Megabreccia”

Age: Uncertain, but including rocks of Devonian and Carboniferous age (ca. 320 million years)
