The Dinosaur Coast
Numerous erratic boulders litter the landscape, giving a glimpse of the massive power of the ice. These boulders, which are often very large, have been brought in the ice from as far a field as Scotland, the Lake District and even Scandinavia. They were then dumped when the ice melted. A large example can be seen near the entrance to Seamer station, near Scarborough, smaller examples litter the coast and are easily picked out at places such as Robin Hood’s Bay.
The coastal area from Maw Wyke, north of Robin Hood’s Bay, to Beach Cliff to the south is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
