Lilstock Beach

Lilstock is a beach of mostly shingle, sand and mud, with low cliffs to the east and west. A car parking area is located at Grid Ref: ST171451, and can be reached by turning off onto a track at Lilstock village. The beach is about 200 yards further down the track, and looks out towards the island of Steep Holm in the channel. Fossil hunting is a popular activity, with finds including ammonites and reptile vertebrae (icthyosaur and pleisiosaur). These can be found on the beach and also in the blue lias cliffs to the east, but walking across the pebbly shore is hard going. As this is an SSSI, extracting fossils from the living rock is not permitted.

The sea here is a muddy brown colour, and the presence of a sewage outfall means swimming is definitely not advisable.

Dogs are allowed at all times.
