Hornina je zde prevazne silne navetrala se zretelnou kaolinizaci zivcu a chloritizaci biotitu. Granit je misty slabe usmerneny, patrne jsou velmi cetne pukliny a poruchova pasma (drnovsky granit). Lokalita ma vyznam i z pohledu botanickeho reliktni bor se skalnimi spolecenstvy (vresy lisejniky) ve vrcholovych partiich lomu.

[EN] Gallows Hill is located 0.5 km southeast from the city Stod, approximately 200 meters from point Gallows Hill. The nearest big town is Pilsen about 25km north-east. On closer inspection, we find that it consists of three abandoned quarries on the average wall height of 10 to 15 meters maximum width of 50 meters. This is a Barrandian Proterozoic infotabule On the western slope of the hill brought Gallows Hill rubble stone and gravel, the fourth outcrop was a sand pit where granite is mined Eluvium. Former mining area is 0.3 km2. The rock is mostly highly weathered, with distinct kaolinization chloritizací feldspar and biotite. Granite is locally weakly streamlined, shows are very numerous fissures and fault zones (Drnov granite). Location is important from the perspective of a botanical relic Committee with rock communities (lichens heathers) in the highest parts of quarries.

In late 1996, the top of the gallows being registered as a significant landscape element. This area, which includes a former quarry, not cultivated meadows and trees and greenery shrublayer. The top part of the growing specially protected plant species - Endangered and threatened orchid Cuckoo Anthericum lily. Gallows Hill has a high aesthetic landscape value and a high level of biological diversity. Around the gallows hill trail leads Stodsko and this is her fourth stop.


Questions for the log:

  • In what year was the territory of gallows hill being registered as a significant landscape feature?
