Doesn't look like this in the summer, it is normally wall to wall with cars and pedestrians. A fact of life in many sea side resorts around the country.
The Steps of Death
Stretching from Brean Down to Burnham on Sea these sands are about 7 miles long. Thought there might be some sand yachting on here today but no sign of any. There were a lot of people about at the various entrances along its length and a fare share of dogs and horses. As mentioned above, it was quite a slog along this beach.
This is on the beach on the northern end of Burnham beach and when this came into view I knew there was not far to go. This lighthouse replaced the old tower lighthouse and is used to warn shipping of the shifting sand and mud flats in this area. It was built in 1837 by a Samuel Nelson and it is a grade 2 listed building. It was decommissioned in 1969 but started up again in 1983 when the original tower was permanently discontinued when it was turned into a holiday let. Another 1/2 mile found me at the Bay View Cafe for tea and a Kit Kat. Most welcome.
The return journey was along the A38 and A370 with the wind behind me. Luxury!
The total mileage was just over 27.
