More limestone pebbles or beach stones with seashells on the strandline at Oxwich Bay in Gower. The stones have generally come from local cliff strata composed of early Carboniferous Limestone. This beach is mostly sandy and backed by extensive dunes, but the headlands on either side are rocky, The different rock layers have evocative names based on the locations where they outcrop, such as Penmaen Burrows, High Tor, Hunt’s Bay and Oxwich Head Limestones.
