The cliffs and beach are an attraction for fossil hunters, especially after a heavy storm.

The thatched Church of All Saints and St Margarets sits proudly on the clifftop, it has one tower and two naves due to the fact that it used to be two separate churches.

There is normally a sheep in the graveyard busily keeping the grass short and tidy.

With it's close proximity to Lowestoft, which is the first place in Great Britain to see the sunrise, it is well worth making the effort to go to the beach early morning in favourable weather so as not to miss this brilliant spectacle, awesome.
