Lower Coastal Path, Overton Cliff
Lower Coastal Path, Overton Cliff
Overton Cliff can be accessed from the stile in the south east corner of the Long Hole Cave nature reserve in the west, or from the footpath adjacent to the seashore of the Overton Mere nature reserve in the east.

Overton Cliff is predominantly heathland and scrub made up of a mixture of European and Western Gorse (7-10) and Bell Heather (7-8) together with Hawthorn, Blackthorn, and Juniper (4). Because of the close proximity of the sea and lack of grazing, part of the grassland at the western end of the reserve, which is dominated by Red Fescue, has formed a thick mattress-like sward now invaded by Gorse.

The coastal pathway you see heading off into the distance is the lower of the two marked on maps at Overton Cliff, but compared to the one above the cliffs it's the most exhilarating.
