Kilve Beach

Kilve Beach is mostly rocks, rock-pools and some sand, backed by low cliffs and a large lawned area with seats and a picnic table. There are views towards the island of Steep Holm in the channel, and Minehead to the west. The cliffs are of blue lias, with shales and marls also present. Fossils can be found, such as ammonites and reptile vertabrae (mostly icthyosaur), and there are usually small groups of people scouring the shore. As Kilve is an SSSI, extracting fossils from the living rock is not allowed.

To get here, turn off at the post office in Kilve village along Sea Lane which leads to a P&D car park pleasantly situated amongst some trees and bordering a small stream. The beach is approximately 200 yards from the car park. Dogs are allowed at all times.

Just before the car park are the remains of the medieval Chantry which is neighbour to the Chantry Tea Gardens - a good place to enjoy lunches, ice creams or afternoon teas. Kilve village also has a pub (The Hood Arms) and a post office / shop.

The photos were taken at low tide.
