Summary:Six phases of deformation are recognized in the Devonian metasediments to the north of the Lizard complex. The first two phases represent regional events but are considerably modified by the emplacement of the complex; the remaining phases post-date the Lizard emplacement and are related to the Cornubian batholith.
