Lava Bombs - Trebarwith Strand (S4)

In the Cliff to the north of the main Car Park at Trebarwith Strand is an area of overhanging coarse rock above a layer of fine grained rock , both from the Lower Carboniferous Period.
The rough rock was formed during a period of explosive undersea activity when blobs (bombs) of volcanic molten lava / ash were blasted into the air.
Volcanic bombs undergo varying degrees of aerodynamic and /or impact shaping, depending on their fluidity, during the flight through the atmosphere and subsequent impact.
