Cogden and Burton Bradstaock

14.Aug.16

A friend and I went for a walk on a gloriously beautiful Summer Sunday.DSCF9559

We parked near Cogden Beach, (There is a National Trust Car Park at the roadside).DSCF9561crossed the footpath to get to the steps to the beach and walked East to Cogden on a litter pick, finding most along the high-tide mark.DSCF9563

My friend is a litter pick star! She lives in town and goes for a litter pick walk each morning along by the river and has been doing that for years, so she was quite happy to join me in my latest crazy craze.

We walked to Cogden, had a paddle, DSCF9565ate our packed lunches and turned back along the beach.DSCF9562

Putting our bags in the car, we then walked the coast path to Burton Bradstock.DSCF9574

The houses you can see are The Boarding House, and next to it the home of local celebrity, singer, musician and activist Billy Bragg.
