Chidley Pumps

If you walk from the town to chapel stile at low tide you can access Chidley Pumps or Lower Beach, from a path off to your right about 5 minutes walk from the town. Chidley Pumps at high tide was a great beach to dive off the rocks when we were children, but with erosion and deposition changing environment the estuary is silting up. Although the tide still comes in at Chidleys it isn’t as deep as it was.
