Black Rocks

The Bendricks, Vale of Glamorgan

The Bendricks is a stretch of coastline, just to the west of Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan. The rocks here date back to the Triassic period and are over 200 million years old. At low tide you will find the footprints of dinosaurs who roamed this area in the later Triassic.

The Cadoxton River flows through a man made channel into the Severn on this stretch of the coast. The Cadoxton is the shortest river in the Vale, rising just outside Dinas Powys it runs for about 8 miles before flowing into the Severn.

All images captured on a Barnack Leica using Kodak Tri X 400. The negatives were scanned and processed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro.
