Sandy Pit doline panorama

Sandy Pit doline panorama
Broad Haven (south) to Stackpole Head

Immediately inland from Box Bay in the previous photo is the 'Sandy Pit' doline; a large karst solution hollow. There is a connection with the sea at the base, so marine erosion has probably contributed to the enlargement of the hollow.

The name 'Sandy Pit' possibly refers to a partial filling with post-glacial blown sand (subsequently largely exploited and excavated?)

This panoramic view shows the large size of the doline and consists of three landscape photos stitched together with Photoshop software.

Merci! Un gouffre karstique certainement!
Il y a beaucoup de calcaire sur cette côte. Les processus karstiques sont importants pour créer le paysage.
