Northern Door, The Strangles

Looking south from the cliffs of the Strangles, you can see successive headlands all the way down the coast, most of which seem to have a small rocky island sitting slightly offshore and out among the waves.


At the base of the Strangles cliffs you can see a formation called the Northern Door, the height of its ‘doorway’ is probably around 20 metres/65 ft.

From this you can start to work out how the islands further south began. At some stage that bridge of land, seemingly just about hanging on to the rock with a fragile looking arm as it is being overwhelmed by the ever-battering seas, is going to collapse into the waves and another small island will join the others.

    1. Thank you for saying so. It may be the case that I can find a picture and know how to make the best of it for my style but at the same time there are many more things I wish I was better at… such is life for all of us I think,


      1. That is true. You have a skill with photography, but no matter what skills we are blessed with, it is human nature to look at others and wish for them! 😊😊😊
