Brean, North Somerset
Establishment Photo
Promontory of land with dramatic cliffs and Victorian fort.

Brean Down, rich in wildlife and history, is one of the most striking landmarks of the Somerset coastline, extending 1½ml into the Bristol Channel.

At its most seaward point a Palmerston Fort, built in 1865 and then re-armed in World War Two, provides a unique insight into Brean’s past.

Glastonbury Tor -
Photo: Pam Brophy CCL

Prominent hill overlooking the Isle of Avalon, Glastonbury and the Somerset Levels. The dramatic and evocative Tor dominates the surrounding countryside and offers spectacular views over Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire. At the summit of this very steep hill an excavation has revealed the plans of two superimposed churches of St. Michael, of which only the 15th-century tower remains.
