Bude, Padstow, Trevose Head and Trevone are some of the best areas of North Cornwall for discovering fossils including brachiopods, sea lilies and bryozoa.The north coast of Cornwall provides many fascinating geological sites including: the visually stunning Millook Haven with its sandstones and shales folded in an amazing zig-zag formation; Lanterdan Quarry near Trebarwith with its towering slate pillars; the raised beach at Porth Nanven on the Land's End peninsula; St Agnes Beacon, once an island; Cligga Head, near Perranporth, a granite outcrop with exposed greisen veins; and the Rocky Valley, a gorge near Tintagel.Extending along the central spine of Cornwall these granite bosses extend from the Land's End to Tregonning, Carnmenellis, Redruth and Carn Brea, Helman Tor and the Luxulyan area of Central Cornwall to Bodmin Moor in the north with another small granite intrusion in south east Cornwall at Gunnislake and Kit Hill.Some fossils can be found in Cornwall in the metamorphic and sedimentary rocks from the Devonian and Carboniferous seas.Cornwall's south coast offers more geological sites, different in nature but equally spectacular including: the stretch of coastline from Land's End to Gwennap Head with its amazing granite formations; the Logan Rock, near Treen, a 65 tonne granite boulder which 'logged' or rocked when pushed by the hand of a single person; the Loe Bar, near Helston; the Devil's Frying Pan near Cadgwith; the Fal estuary, a ria and one of the largest natural harbours in the world; and the raised beach at Carne on Gerrans Bay.Central Cornwall boasts one of the strangest sites, Roche Rock, an outcrop of rock rising from an otherwise normal area crowned by the ruins of a 15th century chapel.The geology of Cornwall provides a wealth of variation from the oldest rocks of the Lizard peninsula which could date from as far back as the Pre-Cambrian period over 600 million years ago to Cornwall's most recent geology of the Late Tertiary and Quaternary periods up to 70 million years ago.Much of Cornwall's geology belongs to two well known periods: Devonian, the rocks being described locally as 'killas' and over 400 million years old; and from the Carboniferous period 350 million years ago.
“This is a huge accolade and is recognition of not only the beach but the town,” said Cllr Jason Osborne, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Tourism and Culture Briefholder.
Even the oldest rocks of the Lizard have undergone metamorphic transition over their lifetime, with the intrusion of igneous rocks.
The famous serpentine stone in its green and red varieties has found its way across the world, taken as a lighthouse or ornament, a momento or souvenir from a visit to the Lizard peninsula.
The World Heritage Site encompasses mining landscapes dating from 1700 to 1914, when deep hard-rock mining was developed in Cornwall and when major developments in technology within Cornwall helped to transform mining both locally and worldwide.
The ten areas which are included in the World Heritage Site, chosen for where the physical remains of mining from this period are best represented include: St Just in Penwith; Hayle; St Day/Gwennap; Camborne/Redruth; Godolphin/Tregonning; Wendron; St Agnes; Caradon; Luxulyan Valley and Charlestown; Tamar Valley and Tavistock.
