What one of our visitors told us: Last Thursday I joined a historic guided walk called Hidden West Bay. Extremely interesting, our volunteer guides Sarah & Jane were so friendly & knowledgeable & we all had a super walk all on the flat, so very enjoyable. Afterwards we had a good look around the Discovery Centre again interesting exhibits in an old chapel building. Highly recommend. Karen Skipper June 2021
