Wherrytown, Penzance. Friday from Mike
Fossilised tree exposed by the storms. Geologists believe extensive forests extended across Mount's Bay in Penzance between 4,000 and 6,000 years ago.
Cornwalls Geoconservation Group, said: "The forest bed at Wherry Town on the west side of Penzance has not been exposed to this extent for 40 years or more. The storms have revealed two to five metre trunks of pine and oak as well as the remains of hazel thickets with well-preserved cob nuts and acorns washed out by streams running across the beach."
St Michaels Mount in Cornwall was once known as 'Karrek Loos yn Koos' which translates as 'Grey Rock in the Wood', with John of Worcester, writing in 1099, that St Michael's Mount was located five or six miles from the sea, enclosed in a thick wood. radiocarbon dating on timber from the peat beds in Mount’s Bay and it is thought that extensive forests extended across the bay between 4000 and 6000 years ago when hunter gatherers were giving way to early farming communities.Submerged forests are evidence of the changes in the bay as sea level has risen since the end of the last glaciation.
