Description

This syncline is at Summerleaze Beach, Bude, Cornwall. The interbedded shales and sandstones are from the Bude Formation, deposited during the Westphalian (Upper Carboniferous) as the last remnants of the Rheic ocean were infilled with sediment. The photograph is taken facing East, roughly along the strike of the beds. In the top metre of the section, the rocks have been shattered, probably by freeze-thaw during the last ice-age.
