Lulworth Cove - Folding of the Rocks
When the continents of Africa and Europe collided 24-1.5 million years ago the effects were far reaching causing changes in the rock formations many hundreds of miles away. The rocks at Lulworth were lifted, twisted and folded over 90 into their present position. The collision of the earth's tectonic plates left visible waves in the rock where faults or weaknesses in the rock strata responded to the pressure causing the folding that can be seen.
