The start

We start at Old Hartley and walk along the cliff top to Collywell Bay.  This bay has a small beach and we take every chance to walk on sand, so we will take a drop down onto the beach.

When we walk back up from the beach, we will be in Seaton Sluice.  We get to take a close look at the sluice itself and Rocky Island, the island created when the sluice was created.
