YOUR ADVENTURE IS THROUGH WILD COUNTRY, WITH CHALLENGING STEEP SLOPES, NOT FOR THE INFIRM.  THE WALKS ARE FREE, accompanied by an historical narrative, with photos, of many events through time, some of which were tragic. WE VISIT OUR   CHURCH, and see the damage caused by raiding Dutch Seamen in 1667View entrances, with photos, of subterranean 1850’s tunnels, and ammunition magazines, still here, underground, in excellent condition.  Visit location of top secret trials of fighting aircraft, made here, during First World War. Hear about the Pilot’s hilarious instructions on how to behave, and what they were advised to do, after they crashed their aircraft. Hear about their tragedies, after training to fly, when the young men went to war.
