Starting at Lydstep point – slightly scarey, seeing a couple of lads standing on high vertical limestone Cliffs with a sheer drop.
We head from Skrinkle Haven and onwards towards Presipe Bay, chatting to a sweet family who had been recommended this Beach favoured by locals
As we descend onto Manorbier Beach we walk passed King’s Quoit, an ancient “cromlech” burial chamber.
Hats of to Keep Wales Tidy! There are thousands of volunteers working together to keep our coast clear of rubbish. We have repeatedly seen the mounds of rubbish that beach cleaning volunteers have collected for Council pick up – the photograph of a letter is from a volunteer replying to a letter of thanks left on a bench. Unsung heroes – many thanks.
Manorbier Castle, Norman style Manor House overlooks the beach. Gerald Cambrensis – Gerald of Wales was born here in 1146.
Crossing the stepping stones, we curved around East Moors Cliff to Swanlake Bay – not an official nudist beach but we did spot a chap in a sweater but with nothing covering his nether regions – on a cold day it must be a nudist dilemma do I go topless or bottomless!
A Sunday lunch stop at The Longhouse, Freshwater East, and very nice it was too, before heading up the steep slope towards Greenala Point and then downwards towards Stackpole Quay
