Abstract/Summary

Pull-apart basins filled with early Cenozoic sediments suggest that a strike-slip regime was widely developed in the British Isles during the Palaeogene. Here, new evidence of strike-slip tectonism from Northern Ireland and the southern North Sea is used to support and extend a tectonic model previously proposed to explain pull-apart basin formation in Cardigan Bay.
