The most geologically celebrated rocks encountered in the Basin and Waulsortian (reef) mounds or knoll limestones are also well known for their prolific array of marine crinoid fossils. During the day you will also see dramatic changes in the rock type from limestone to thick deposits of dark muds which filled the Basin (Hodder Mudstones) prior to a major influx of sand that formed the unusual, deep water Pendle Grit which forms the impressive uplands of the area. Suitable for 18 years and over. Please note limited parking at some sites. Booking essential. Please call the AONB office on 01200 448000 or email sandra.silk@lancashire.gov.uk.
