Nash Point

Cliff Fort

Nash Point (Cliff Fort) by GLADMAN Looking approx north-west from the enclosure.... one hopes the previous occupants erected some manner of wall around these impregnable flanks of their home.... or else refrained from sleepwalking.

Wow... Any idea how much has been lost to the sea since the Iron Age? juamei Posted by juamei

No... but Carl and TSC will tell you that that coast gets a pounding so I would've thought 2,000-odd years would taken quite a bit away? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

It certainly does. I reckon a fair amount has gone, it felt a bit precarious in some places, it's so narrow now. There's another fort a bit further up the coast where there's a big piece of detached cliff lying below the current cliff edge, it still has grass growing on top of it. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
