About the Property
The property at Joggins comprises 14.7 kilometres of coastline along the tumultuous Bay of Fundy. This magnificent setting is home to what Sir Charles Lyell described as “the finest exposure in the world” of the rocks and fossil record of the “Coal Age” of Earth's history.
Typically more than 30 metres in height, the alternating grey and reddish-brown cliff-faces drop abruptly to a rocky beach composed of cobbles and boulders culled from the cliffs above. This border of cliff and beach, periodically submerged by the ocean tides, is crossed by a series of bedrock reefs. The Bay of Fundy tides, the highest in the world, withdraw twice daily to expose hundreds of metres of shoreline.
