Long Description:
Plan to stay a little while and enjoy the view from this lookout. The parking lot can hold about 10 cars, and there is one picnic table. There is also access to a hiking trail (to the white cliffs) and access to some ruins of a church, just a few feet away. Don't miss the ruins! The ruins are the foundations of a small medieval church, according to tradition it was the site of King John's submission to the Papal Legate in 1213.

If you choose to spend time with a picnic, be forewarned there is a flock of birds awaiting their share of your meal. They are pretty, but annoying and accustomed to being fed.
