View along the top of the bank, Hurst Beach
View along the top of the bank, Hurst Beach
This pebbly bank is the backbone of Hurst Spit, which extends out into the Solent towards the Isle of Wight. The spit curves around to the left, and the castle and lighthouse are at its far end. The loose pebbles are very awkward to walk on, and the mile or so to the castle make a laborious walk (memorable enough for Bill Bryson to complain about it in his "Notes from a Small Island").
