We have visited quite a few of the villages and towns that are dotted along the coast of Devon and Dorset. I have always taken some photos, but never really posted any, until lately, and sorting through some old photos, I have found a few to add to my Seaside Category.
The beautiful picturesque village of Beer is located on the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast in Devon. Surrounded by white chalk cliffs, the shingle beach is lined with fishing boats still bringing in their daily catches and is famous for its mackerel.
Historically, Beer has a great lace making tradition and, as with any seaside town, the locals have relied on the fishing industry to maintain their livelihoods. With no natural harbour it is a daily sight to see small boats being winched up the beach and their bounty from the sea being sold nearby.
We were too late to visit the church, so I just took a few exterior shots and maybe next time we will visit. Just a weather note from here in the Fens, in Norfolk, today it got to 31. Too hot for me, but on a good note, England won against Sweden…..sorry Sweden, but we needed to win 🙂
