NOTES ON PORLOCK WEIR

Now a small harbour, Porlock Weir was once an important sea port.

The Danes sacked it on a number of occasions during the 10th century.

In 1052 Harold, the future King of England, landed here from Ireland to begin a career that would end at the battle of Hastings.

Offshore, lies the remains of a submerged forest which is a relic of the last ice age and can be glimpsed at low tide.
