West From the Anvil

The trek west from Anvil Point lighthouse is another good one, the path that follows the cliff top is muddy in winter but easily walkable with care. As you walk, taking in some more of the finest views around, you can be forgiven for thinking that the countryside you can see is virgin and unspoilt. In reality though what you can see right along the ridge is the remains of a long since disused industrial estate. Quarries littered the land from east to west and even the cliffs themselves were breached and robbed of the valuable stone.
What I really love about this place is the fact that nature has reclaimed and is still reclaiming the land that we no longer want.
