Burton Cliff is owned by the National Trust. It offers one of the finest examples of the distinctive, alternate hard and soft layered geology of the Bridport Sands, which make it appear to glow bright gold in the sunlight. The regular rock falls can often expose some important and fascinating fossils, such as ammonites, recognised by their ribbed spiral-formed shell.
This was taken just after the picture of the October Sunrise over Burton Beach. The sun is ever so slightly higher in the sky and is really lighting up the lovely golden stone of the cliffs. In the background you can see Golden Cap, also owend by the Trust. This is the highest point on the South Coast and gives great views across Lyme Bay to Dartmoor and is well worth the steep climb up.
