The Causeway was formed 50 to 60 million years ago when Co. Antrim was subjected to intense volcanic activity. The lava rose through the chalk beds and cooled to form the hexagonal columns we see today. The height of the columns mainly depended on how fast the lava cooled. Most of the Basalt columns are hexagonal but some are known to have four, five, seven or even eight sides.
