Gravel on the summit plateau of Golden Cap
Golden Cap has a yellow capping of weathered Upper Greensand. It is seen in distant views at the top of the sea cliff, the highest in Southern England. It is also apparent as seen here on the summit plateau. In the photo various groups of walkers have settled down near the top after climbing the hill via the coastal path.
South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path National Trail - 630 miles of superb coastal walking. From Minehead on the edge of the Exmoor National Park to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset. It is the longest of all Britain's National Trails.
