Windy walk to the Needles

Another bracing walk to the iconic Needles beckons. We first visited back in 2017 and you can read all about that here.

It’s fairly blustery along the cliff edge hence a lot of windy looking selfies!

The name ‘Needles’ is believed to have been derived from a slender tapering rock pinnacle .

This needle-shaped rock, about 120ft high, known as ‘Lot’s Wife’ collapsed into the sea in 1764 . The stump of this pinnacle can still be seen at low water where it forms a dangerous reef.

World traveller, proud auntie, bit of a liability.
