Hell’s Mouth!

A Saturday evening stroll took us to Hell’s Mouth. Hell’s Mouth is owned by the National Trust and there’s lots of parking available in either the Hell’s Mouth Café car park (for customers) or on the road opposite the view point. Hell’s mouth, as the name suggests is a high sheer drop down to the sea and is sadly a known spot for a history of suicides. I noticed whist I was there this time that there were various Samaritans posters and numbers attached to both the wooden barriers near the edge and where we parked the car. I don’t recall seeing these last time I visited in the summer so I wonder if something has happened recently to cause these to be put up.


We were the only ones at the spot and walked around for half an hour or so, walking along the cliff top – what a drop! A cool place to visit if you like rugged cliffs and a relatively quiet spot to go for a walk. There’s some lovely wild flowers growing there at the moment which add such vibrancy to the cliffs.
