A thoroughly worthwhile second visit. It is a timeless experience because of course the many remembered are remembered for all time. This was the second visit and with visibility much better it was much better than the first.

Definitely worth a visit - beautiful views out to sea, poignant memorial and some history on each person commemorated add to the overall visit. Plenty to see and learn about - rain or shine and only £1 to park
