ST0265 : Breaksea Point sea wall

taken 10 years ago, near to West Aberthaw, The Vale of Glamorgan/Bro Morgannwg, Great Britain

Breaksea Point sea wall.
Breaksea Point sea wall.
The wall borders the point and power station from The Walls to the west, where there aren't any except war time sea defences, almost to Watchhouse Point to the east. It has a concave face with overhanging peak, facing seaward to throw waves and anything carried by them back to the sea. During fierce storms this isn't too effective on occasion and sizeable boulders can be thrown up to a hundred metres inside the protective barrier.
