Photographer's Note

A walk down from Hartland Abbey, and you reach the sea.

"In the cliffs and foreshore can be seen spectacular evidence of geological events which took place over 300 million years ago.

The rocks are sandstones and mudstones that were laid down around 320 million years ago, (during the Carboniferous period) in what was then a brackish sea.
Of particular interest are the striking patterns that can be seen in the faces of the cliffs.
These tell a dramatic story of ancient forces that have helped to shape the Earth as we see it today."

If you look carefully at this shot you might see one or two people walking on the rocks, probably rock pooling.

Two more views in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
