    Great to see your brilliant photos of the Glamorgan coast where I walked as a youth: come rain, come shine, as a teenager. Having decided to go for a walk on Saturday along the Lias limestone shore, I would go anyway even if it was pouring rain when the time came, the decaying red triadic marls reaching up to Penarth head, the blue-grey fine grained Lias limestone and Jurassic / rheatic bone beds., beach coming to Lavernock Poitr and the Marconi memorial tablet in the garden wall where he sent his first wireless messages across a body of water, all the time the fog-horns on Flatholm assaulting my ears. Walk there along the beach, walk back along the cliff tops. Your photos really capture the atmosphere. Brilliant.

Whether you have comments on the photos, some knowledge or a personal story on this area you’d like to share, or you’ve spotted a typo or error, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
