Quiet Winter Walk

We did this in February 2017. Quiet and scenic when on the coast. However, the path from Speeton got increasingly more muddy and slippery as we neared the cliff top and we practically slid down to the beach! Church in Speeton was closed so we couldn't take advantage of the info you could get advertised in the car park. Good walk to combine with a visit to the superb family run Reighton nurseries.

What do you think?
