GLAMORGAN HERITAGE COAST
Limited Edition Print *
Image of Glamorgan Heritage Coast and limestone cliffs, taken from near Broughton Beach, looking east toward Monknash and Nash Point.
The stretch of coastline forms part of the Glamorgan Heritage Site of Special Scientific Interest, due to its geology, fossils and botany.
Carboniferous Limestone from upwards of 300 million years ago lies at the present sea level. By the Triassic period, 200 million years ago, these rocks were already tilted and eroded. A new deposition phase created more sedimentary rocks, including a red Triassic conglomerate, and a creamy white Jurassic limestone known as Sutton Stone, a freestone much sought-after for carved stonework, and so widely quarried where it occurs.
