Valley of the Rocks
Valley of the Rocks
The steep bracken covered hillside of South Cleave gives a good aerial view of the Valley of the Rocks, a probably former route of the West Lyn River subsequently left isolated above the coast as sea levels have changed. The peak to the left is Castle Rock and in the middle is Rugged Jack. The roundabout looks incongruous but is probably there for longer vehicles (buses etc) to turn round as the road towards us is a private toll road.
