Anyhow, the Haystacks (pictured below) are another part of the Borrowdale volcanics and make for a very interesting walk (on a good day you can see Scafell Pike and Great Gable for example). In the area are a number of volcanic features including pyroclastic tuff deposits at an area called little round how (if I remember correctly) and the site of a pepperitic contact (something I shall discuss in a later post). One of the most intriguing deposits is littered across the summit of the haystacks itself and can be described as a series of andesitic folds which are thought to have been part of a doming formation. Although detailed research has yet to be completed, to my knowledge anyway. These folds are pictured in the image above where the banding of the folds can be clearly seen.
