SS9168 : Nash Point Cliff and Beach

taken 11 years ago, near to Marcross, The Vale of Glamorgan/Bro Morgannwg, Wales

Nash Point Cliff and Beach
Nash Point Cliff and Beach
At low tide rockpools and sand are exposed for exploration. The area is of significant geological interest and fossils are to be found in many of the fallen rocks and on the surfaces of the boulders scattered along the shore line. Because of its structure, beds of blue lias sitting on those of mud stone, and the effects of wave action and weather the cliffs are extremely dangerous. Combined with the high tides of the Bristol Channel this makes it an area to be explored with some caution.
