Thurlestone Arch

Thurlestone Arch

Photo Information
Thurlestone Rock was originally known as the 'thirled stone', from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning 'hole'. The arch is of Permian Red Sandstone, which formed around 250-300 million years ago.

The fin of rock with the portal is made of silty banded slates of the Meadfoot Beds. This is at the southern end of South Milton Sands.

These rocks lie in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Devon, UK

Taking a banal view and producing a intelligent result is laudable. But here the rock breathes.
Scary, in a nice way. thanks, Tony
