The sea has played a key role in the way Nose’s Point looks and the plants and animals found here, the magnesian limestone bedrock, laid down in an ancient sea, has given rise to a rare form of grassland with unique populations of plants and animals such as the Northern Brown Argus butterfly and it’s food plant, the common rockrose.
The dramatic and rugged coastline with its cliffs and sea stacks was carved out purely by the action of the waves. The site, once awash with heavy industry, is now a tranquil place of calm. A century of mining waste has now gone and sea life is now thriving beneath the waves once more. With easy to follow paths, stunning scenery, information boards and poetry, there is lots to explore.
