Welcome to the website for Millom Rock Park
Learn how rocks are continually being created, broken down and changed in the ‘rock cycle’. Look down from the Quarry View at rocks created inside a 450 million-year-old caldera volcano. See how the rock is quarried, crushed and processed — and find out what it’s used for. Discover, too, how minerals, mining and money have shaped Millom over the years.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED ABOUT THE ROCKS BENEATH YOUR FEET?
What they’re made of, how they were formed, and how long ago?
You’ll find many of the answers here at the Rock Park website.
Visitors to the Rock Park can walk down ‘Rock Street’ to view the massive rock samples collected here from across Cumbria which give clues to ancient worlds and the unimaginable span of geological time.
