A sea of pebbles at Porlock beach in Exmoor National Park, North Somerset, SW England, UK. Wooden groynes (posts) can be seen in the middle distance to prevent erosion due to longshore drift. I remember a school field trip here years ago to measure average pebble sizes up and down the beach to prove direction of movement and erosion. We knew how to have fun in those days!
At low tide the remains of a submerged forest can be seen as the area was several miles inland until the sea level in the Bristol Channel rose about 7000 to 8000 years ago.
Apparently the village of Porlock has the most elderly population in the country (over 40% pensionable age).
