High point Samson

The tops of North and South Hill can be reached by paths that climb from the sandy isthmus that joins them. A Bronze Age stone burial chamber can be explored on North Hill which also offers a great vantage point to see the Samson Flats, a Bronze Age field system exposed at low tide. An ascent of South Hill reveals more prehistoric graves along with the ruined cottages of the 40 or so people that once lived here. The last two surviving families suffered malnutrition from a diet of limpets and potatoes.
