Fascinating Alf. What are they? Remnants of a coastal defence system ? I looked a bit but couldn't find a reference to them. I found a colour picture which looks like the same thing and which suggests they are made of concrete. Intriguing that someone added the shot to "Beaches around the world" collection Great shot.
Yeah exactly from the steelworks a short distance away.
The beaches are covered in layers of it. Industrial waste as sea defences.
It was having seen these at Mynydd Parys copper mine, although these are only about 30-40cm across:
Here is another shot from a different point those are not chalk cliffs

My goodness, how on earth did you time a visit to get that sky?
That's very nice
As we walked to the stones the heavens opened and we found ourselves in the middle of a thunderstorm. It's a bit pricey there so I made the family troop on through the downpour. As we reached the stones the rain stopped while we walked around which is when I noticed the shape of the cloud formation. So I ran back to position the stones underneath the opening. I couldn't believe all the other people taking photos hadn't spotted it. I even pulled Mrs Dan back to see it. It was a complete Stoke of luck. And quite literally as we walked away the rain came down again. By the time we were in our van the rain was as heavy as I have ever seen rain.
We had a very lucky holiday, so many other things just all fell into place throughout the week. One to remember.
Thanks Pete. It was so nice to have some new places to photo
It's definitely a cut above the usual shot of the 'henge...
