Crumbling cliffs at Saltwick Bay

The cliffs at Saltwick Bay are formed from both sandstone and mudstone, meaning that they are exceptionally fragile and prone to collapse.  Along the shore wave-washed shale boulders are left stranded by the receding tide and their textured edges reveal the layered lamination that is a identifying quality of this type of sedimentary rock.
