Tectonics (1)

In 2008, when this stream was violently flash flooded - with loss of life - the gorge became a raging torrent. Only a mile overall in length, it more usually trickles along a line of seismic fracture in the Lands End Granites from the moor up in the High Country of West Penwith, through this gorge and under the SW coastal footpath, before falling over the 150' granite cliff into the Atlantic.
