Add a review


Many examples of geological activity are illustrated along the roads and cliffs of Wales, including basin sedimentation, volcanic activity, the effects of plate tectonic movements in opening basins and folding and metamorphosing the rocks in the two major continental collisions recorded in the mountains.
This book is written for persons with little geology background. As the title of this guide indicates, it focuses on the geology of Wales that can be seen from a car. The descriptions are organized following the main roads, though in most cases the best outcrops are in the sea cliffs and on the beaches.
