    Excellent! I'll give you a pm soon. Don't worry, I won't be let down, as from your pics and report there's loads there to interest me. I'm also fanatic about nature, so I'll be very happy just for that alone as well as all the other stuff.
    If you'd like to see pics of another special place (imo :) ), there's a report in the archived Offtopic Chat of Goat Island. Nothing urbex-wise (apart from a gardener's hut! ), but gorgeous to visit.

    Foxy :)

    Certainly no problem finding nature there. Badgers, foxes, bats, all sorts of plants, rare bird coloneys etc etc...

    Cool I'll take a look thanks!

    The ROC post is all locked up but as far as I know it's all intact down there. If you contact the right people they might open it for you. It used to be fenced off but it isn't anymore, so you never know, they could be helpful! If they are can you let me know as I'd like to have a look down there too. I've only recently found out what it was, and it used to intrigue me every time I went there.

    Hi
    Cheers for showing the photos, nice one.
    Just wondering if that was a ghost in the 7th picture, the one of the main fort wall looking towards st Marys bay? It looks like its doing a little dance.

    No not a ghost. Never seen any of them up there. It's my boyfriend, blanked out. I suppose it does look a bit like he's doing a dance!

    Thumbs up Re: Berry Head


    Thanks for these photos -a facinating collection of various buildings / structures. Must say though -that Lighthouse doesn't look very high? Is it high up on a cliff? Thanks again :)

    Glad you like the pics :)

    That lighthouse is a bit special. It's said to be the smallest/shortest (it really is quite tiny) yet the highest (it's very high on the cliff) in Britain! Quite something really. If you look on the last but 2 pic, you can see the coastguard station on the cliff, and the lighthouse is just to the left of that, to give you some idea of the height. When you're down in the quarry looking up, or on the top looking down (be very careful if you try that, the edge isn't safe) you can appreciate just how high it is. If you want more info about height, size etc. Take a look at http://www.trinityhouse.co.uk/intera...erry_head.html
