today's walk: St Bees Head


St Bees Priory


the shore at St Bees


looking down on the shore from part way up the cliff path


zooming down on Fleswick Bay


the path heading for Fleswick Bay


looking down on Fleswick Bay from the other side


looking back down the steep path climbing out of the bay


the cliffs northwards from the first RSPB viewpoint


the cliffs southwards from the second RSPB viewpoint


zooming in there are a few guillemots but soon the cliffs will be covered with them


gulls above the sea


a detached bit of cliff seen from the third RSPB viewpoint


looking back along the cliffs shortly before I head inland


looking forward towards Whitehaven - not visible today


the village green in Sandwith


sheep and lambs on the Coast to Coast route just after I'd left it to head back to St Bees


pony on my return path


stile on the return path


the same awkward staggered stile from the other side


blossom on a tree in front of part of St Bees school


this is the quadrangle described in the plaque above


the west door of St Bees Priory
