Fresh landslide
Fresh landslide
After a notoriously wet Summer, water-saturated ground has collapsed just a matter of days prior to this visit by the North Wales Geology Association. Bramble bushes are still fresh and green at the toe of the slip, and wave action has not carried away a significant amount of fine material, while a large boulder (SH3040 : Erratic boulder) stands on end where it has come to rest.
