/ Swanage and Portland warning
So here's another, if you are at Winspit and stand below pump me tenderly and look up you will see some overhang rock at the top, there is very little stopping this come down so don't sit underneath.
also was on Portland yesterday and saw the massive amount of movement below the cliffs north of blacknor (see path closer post) there has also been a mud and rock slide down the way in to the cliff top quarry at blacknor south, and looks like the ledge below the pugwash wall has been cover with mud.
take care out there!
Thanks, for the heads up. was hoping to go there this saturday. might give it a miss now. do you think cuttings might be a better option?
There has been a sizable rockfall from the slat band above Rainshadow wall which has flattened a large area of thorn bushes and left the cliff now nice and open to the sun (every cloud..etc).
The bouldering around The Bill (hidden cove etc)is rather damp but "might" dry with an hours sun and the same applies to Neddyfields main cliff but I'm not sure it's safe to walk under Godnor at the moment.
I decided against venturing onto the West side, the bank is just too wet and slippy for reasonable access.
Like Marti says, take care and before you climb stand back and have a good look at the top of the cliff - it might just save your life!
Doesn't sound like I'm missing too much then!
