Bempton Cliffs

Bempton Cliffs

A scene in Book 13 takes place at Bempton Cliffs, on the Yorkshire coast, 3 miles north of Flamborough Head. As usual, I wrote the piece before I did the research. We set off to Bempton in fine spring sunshine but as we drove up Garrowby Hill the weather changed and we ran into a bank of fog. This lasted all the way to the coast and just about obliterated the cliffs. They are 400 feet high, but after about 30 feet they vanished into the gloom. The birds didn't mind, though. There were thousands of them, swooping and gliding into view and out again. Gannets were plentiful but we didn't see any puffins.
