Important safety notice about the risk of cliff falls

Important safety notice. Following the cliff and rock falls along the coast, we urge you to stay well back from the edges when using the coast path along the cliff top, and away from the undercliff when on the beaches. Please take heed of safety signs on site – these cliffs are unstable and liable to rock falls at any time.
