SJ2967 : Red Rocks, Wepre Park

taken 9 years ago, near to Connah's Quay, Flintshire/Sir y Fflint, Great Britain

Red Rocks, Wepre Park
Red Rocks, Wepre Park
Hard sandstone (or millstone grit) outcrop in Wepre Park. This was the stone used to construct Ewloe Castle at the southern end of the woodland. This is red sandstone, typical of many sandstone outcrops in this area, the red colour caused by oxidised iron. They are an indication of possible coal seams lower down, and Wepre Park has many small surface pits which were dug by hand.
