Folds - Porthleven Cliffs (S17)

The thin veins in the Mylor Slates of the Porthleven Cliffs show extensive folding.
The slates are mainly fine grained sedimentary rocks ( turbidites) formed from different coloured sediments that have undergone folding and intense deformation during the Variscan Orogeny , and subjected to low grade regional metamorphism.

Access to the beach , on a low tide, from Porthleven or Loe Bar.
