Photographer's Note

This view is taken from the opposite side of the headland from 'Berry Head #1.

I was stood in a corner of the ruins of what was once a Napoleonic Fort, looking west.

"Berry Head was the site of an Iron Age hill fort which was mostly destroyed by the construction between 1794 and 1804 of extensive fortifications to protect the Torbay naval anchorage against threatened invasion by French armies."

Berry Head is a National Nature Reserve.
"Berry Head to Sharkham Point is a haven for several nationally rare and threatened species which are dependent upon the thin limestone soils, mild climate and exposed conditions of the headland."

As you look along the cliff top you will see people walking, this is part of the reserve.
Unfortunately, the day that we were there we did not have time to walk this path; we will be going back to investigate!

Two slightly different views in the w/s.

Thanks for looking.
