The coast line between Penarth Pier's Art Deco Pavillion to Sully Island is rich in history, from Marconi back to the Jurassic era. Join Mark for a seven mile walk exploring this fasincating area.

Starting from Penarth railway station, we will head down to Penarth Pier. We’ll head for a stroll down the promenade, past the medieval village of Cosmeston and on towards St Mary's Bay.

We'll take a detour up to Lavernock Point which contains a 14 acre area of Site of Special Scientific Interest and Lavernock Battery which dates back to 1860 and was an anti-aircraft battery during World War Two.

We’ll make our way past Sully Island, once a notorious for its use by smugglers, to Sully Bay. Weather and tide dependent, we may be able to walk over and explore Sully Island. Afterwards, we'll walk into Sully and catch the bus back to Penarth.
