SH7582 : Shoreline and defences

taken 11 years ago, near to Gogarth, Conwy, Great Britain

Shoreline and defences
Shoreline and defences
Large houses built along the Gogarth shore sit atop a cliff of boulder clay and loose limestone blocks from the slope of the Great Orme. Fresh scars from minor landslides sit above modern rock-armour - testifying to the insidious erosion of this desirable but fragile location. The layered Carboniferous Limestone of the Great Orme rises steeply in the background, with the Marine Drive making a straight line across the grassed slope.
