|Description ||The "arched" slab in the foreground is a natural erosion caused when the whole slab layed flat on top of the formation seen behind where it now lays. Wind, rain and loose grit over many centuries carved a natural bowl in the flat top of the rock. The bowl grew over time until it bored through, basically making the rock into the shape of a giant stone polo mint until one day it's own weight broke it in half. Other rocks still undergoing this process with deep bowls weathered into them, still in situ can be seen at Carn Brea. Check Hamish's first picture.|
