A walk on Brean Down will take you on a journey through hundreds of thousands of years of history. Evidence of mammoths and woolly rhinos has been uncovered here, and people have been living, farming and fighting on the down since the Stone Age. A Roman temple and an Iron Age hillfort once commanded views over the sea, and more recently the down has been a crucial lookout, as well as a base for testing secret weapons. With tales as dramatic as the scenery, Brean Down is truly outstanding. With breath-taking photography throughout, original artwork and a fascinating narrative that encompasses thousands of years of history, this guidebook uncovers the attractions that drew and continues to draw people to Brean Down.
