Devonian Red Sandstone Strata
Devonian Red Sandstone Strata
The north side of Lligwy Bay has exposures of Old Red Sandstones, laid down around 400 million years ago in an arid environment and later tilted by tectonic movements so that they now slope towards the south. They are fairly difficult to examine here on the headland because they are thickly covered in barnacles. On the skyline is a wartime lookout post.
