The new sea defences at Borth are similar to those at Twywyn LinkExternal link with rock being brought in by sea to build groynes/breakwaters. I think the larger pieces of angular rock on the right in this view are part of that imported material. The smaller, rounded stones are natural to the area and are largely slate or mud stones.
