Former pillbox at Shell Ness
Former pillbox at Shell Ness
Shellness is a private estate and notices all around tell casual walkers to keep out. However, at the end of the path along the sea wall from Leysdown Country Park, you just walk along the beach below the high tide level and it brings you past the hamlet, still giving good views of the variety of interesting houses. Beyond Shellness the promontory of Shell Ness is reached.

The beach, as the name suggests, is covered with thousands of shells - in fact there are no pebbles, just sand and shells. See also Link This former pill box has a very impressive piece of art on it of a hen harrier - see Link for more information on this. The hamlet of Shellness can be seen in the distance.
