We popped-down to the beach again this weekend and took the opportunity to snap a few more pictures of the ancient uncovered forest. Depending on which report you read, the tree stumps and trunks that you find are between 3,500 and 6,000 years’ old.

The beach is proving to be a real tourist attraction! If you fancy popping down yourself, the submerged forest is clearly visible at low tide. Get yourself to the promenade, turn to face the sea, and then turn left. Walk for a couple of hundred metres down on to the beach and there it is.
