TURNINGSTONE EDGE


Hidden, neglected, and rarely visited, Turningstone Edge has always kept its delights camouflaged under a green cloak. The slope below the cliff is smothered in rhododendrons and this invasive species has taken quite a hold on the cliff too. Concerted efforts by keen locals have cleared sections of the cliff face and its base, making the place worth a visit. A pair of secateurs might be an addition to your normal rack to help keep the shrubs in check.
