Classic Landforms of the Lake District

£70.00

Product description

1988, No.8 Lake District; paperback 46 pages with geological etc. maps, photographs, glossary and bibliography; in Good overall Condition. Geomorphologists make studies of landforms and the processes that create and modify them but the results of their findings often remain inaccessible to the general public. This series attempts to make amends. It reveals to a wider audience the geomorphologists' discoveries about the scenery in the UK which delights the eye of the general public, and is visited by educational parties.

The Lake District is one such region and it has particularly complex landforms. To take one example, the central Lake District is principally composed of ancient lava and pyroclastic rock named the Borrowdale Volcanic Group. Volcanic activity left deposits which fell into the then marine environment, and this resulted in spectacular sedimentary features. These are now extracted by stoneworkers who cut and polish the rock into ornamental artefacts and gifts. With the aid of diagrams, charts, and maps of various sorts, this guide takes each area of the Lake District in the round. It explores through deductive analysis, how each land area was created and how it evolved in time. Advice is given about gaining access to sites and safety measures.

BOOK CONDITION : Good overall : two small stains to top of front cover, several small stains to back cover, partial crease to middle edge of back cover, minor rubbing to covers; the inside pages are in very good shape with only minor toning to whites; staple binding strong and secure.
