Lying beside the Coast Path about one mile north of the parking area at Welcome Mouth is Embury Beacon. Perched on a heavily eroding cliff, the earthwork remains suggest that this would have been a much larger hillfort. Only a fraction of the ramparts survives- a small section of the inner enclosure, which hangs precariously on the cliff edge, and part of the outer, which contains a complex set of earthworks, most likely the entrance to the interior.
How much longer before this ancient monument disappears altogether?
