SummaryEdit

Description
English: Canyards Hill The rough outline suggests evidence of quarrying, but is in fact natural. The area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), the citation for which includes the following:

"This site possesses the most impressive examples in England and Wales of the topographic features known as 'ridge-and-trough' or 'tumbled ground'. Beneath a

10 m high cliff the north-facing valleyside above Broomhead Reservoir is a chaotic mass of sub-parallel ridges, separated by intervening narrow areas of marshy ground. The site is formed in Upper Carboniferous 'Millstone Grit' and shows the most extreme form and best example of 'tumbled ground', with innumerable small Millstone Grit blocks (controlled by jointing) taking up a large landslip."
