The Geology of the Lake District

An Introduction

Robert Westwood


The magnificent landscape of the Lake District has been sculpted over millions of years by natural processes.
Tropical seas, mighty mountains, violent volcanoes and vast ice sheets have all played a part with, all the time, the slow movement of the plates of the Earth’s crust a controlling factor.
It is a complicated story, but this easy to understand guide will take you through the main chapters and explain how to find evidence of the processes on the hills and the dales
