The section of the Wales Coast Path near Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan is spectacular. The Cwm Col-huw beach is rocky with steep dramatic cliffs and a geologists dream. The Jurassic rocks are laden with a wide range of fossils including corals, brachiopods and gastropods. The steep cliffs are composed of mudstones, siltstones and limestones belonging to the Lias Group dating back to between 200 and 180 million years ago. The foreshore of hard limestone stretches out from the base of the cliffs and into the sea. The dramatic geology also makes this a dream location for photographers.
