    It's a great place. I lovethe way the sand comes halfway up the bunkers on the inside. They say the point is gradually moving to one side.

    Great post that looks like it was well worth looking round. I'd be inclined to go back in the winter when the groorowth has died down and you should be able to see more. :)

    A good finale to what has been three very enjoyable and interesting posts. Lots of variety and NC's right, you'll get a better view of these defences in the winter. Thanks very much for these Rich. :)

    Yup, echo everyone else here...a great tour of the area. So much has been decayed by nature that they've become interesting in the the way they look now, as well as in their original use.
    Excellent stuff, Rich. :)
