Title: Natural Slingstones of Britain
Post by StaffSlinger on Jan 12th, 2023 at 2:21pm
HELP!  Somewhere... here?  Elsewhere?  I have a memory of reading about "naturally occurring" round stones in Britain -- west coast?  Some sort of geologic phenomena -- tectonic plates rubbing together?

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Chesil Beach is made of rounded flint pebbles which make fantastic sling ammo. You find pebble beaches all along the south coast of England but Chesil is the best.

Thanks David!  That's some great beach!  I did some slinging at Brighton Beach back in late August -- My partner is Brighton born and we were in the UK for a month visiting her sister and old school friends as well as attending my clan Gathering in The Borders.

:o Incredible. I could spend all day there.

I imagine it's a lot like hereónobody wants to hang around the rocky beaches, so you mostly have it all to yourself!
