Artist's Description

Long Hole Cliff nature reserve is named after a small cave in the centre of the reserve where Stone Age tools were found in the nineteenth century during archeological excavations. They also discovered the fossil remains of Ice Age animals which you can now see in Swansea Museum.

Part of the cliffs closest to the sea in the south east corner of the reserve have been quarried for limestone, which was burned in the adjacent lime kiln, the ruin of which is still visible. The kilns were there to provide lime for spreading on the fields further inland.
