Fishguard Volcanic Group



For those who are geologists, or who are just interested in the geology of the Preseli area, here is a newish paper about the Fishguard Volcanics.  It's very technical, and it concentrates on the Strumble - Pen Caer exposures, but it's good solid background info!

On the map, the FVG rocks are shown with the grey wash  -- the foliated rhyolites at Rhosyfelin belong within this group.

It's probably broken in the middle. Try to eliminate spaces that might have been introduced....
