About this book

This area presents an ideal introduction to fieldwork for students of geology. There is a wide range of geological features that are su­perbly displayed in rocks varying in age from Devonian through to Palaeogene, together with often spectacular structures and a wide range of sedimentary rock types. There is also a good variety of igneous rocks in the area. The Guide covers the coast between Brixham in the west to the county boundary with Dorset, encompassed by the English Riviera Geopark and the western end of the World Heritage coastline. Some inland areas around Dartmoor are also described.
