A good forecast ahead, a trip to Grass Holm maybe?...no the tides don't work. Bristol Channel crossing maybe? Elans in, how about a one way trip down the channel, not done that in a while. A plan is quickly put together the night before and we meet up early at Cardiff Barrage, our finishing point.
The starting point is a good half hour or so journey by car along the coast. Black Rock, where the original 18th century ferry crossing was situated. To the south the 2nd Severn crossing now stands rising out of the muddy waters.
The shoots are also marked by four beacons known as upper and lower shoots beacons. The red beacon pictured above is known as 'Lad Bench'.
Leaving the bridge behind the tide takes us speedily down on to Deny Island.
