Minehead Beach
   The holiday resort of Minehead on the north Somerset Coast, has a mile long beach ending here at the western end by the old quay and dominated by North Hill. In 1990 much of this beach was washed away in a severe storm, and in 1999 the section nearest to the town was rebuilt at a higher level using imported sand.
By enlarging the picture you can just make out the unusual white roofs of the famous Butlin's Holiday complex in the far distance across the bay, and to the far left of this is the Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Station.
