Egmont Bight

Egmont Bight is a shallow embayment at the southern end of the Encombe valley in Dorset, England. It is part of the Jurassic Coast; the bay exposes good sections of Upper Kimmeridge shale and mudstone, with some bituminous shale and some small calcareous nodules. On foot the stony beach is only accessible at low tide by walking 1.0-kilometre west around Egmont Point from the beach at Chapman's Pool. There is no safe route down from the clifftop coast path, across Houns-tout cliff, nor around the Freshwater Steps promontory at the beach's western end. List of Dorset beaches

I find that honorable and a real testimony to the awareness that there is something going on in life other than making a buck or seeing the bottom line.
