Much of the area described in this Sheet Explanation lies within the Pembrokeshire National Park. Spectacular coastal cliffs between Dinas Head and Cemaes Head reach heights of 160m above sea level and inland, deep valleys and gorges incise into the smooth, rolling landscape. The bedrock of the district is deformed Ordovician deep water sedimentary rocks faulted and metamorphosed around 400 million years ago.
