Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Kelling Heath is an area of heathland on the coast of North Norfolk, England, between Holt and Weybourne. It has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and is described by Natural England as 'a fine example of oceanic heathland'.The SSSI covers some 90 hectares.Kelling Heath lies on the Cromer Ridge, a glacial moraine formed by retreating glaciers at the end of the last Ice age. Together with nearby Salthouse Heath, it is one of two distinct outwash plains dating from different halt stages of the same glaciation. Kelling Heath provides perhaps the best example of a glacial outwash plain in England. Both sites have steep ice-contact slopes and are dissected by deep dry valleys, and are geomorphological sites of national importance.show more
