    Beaches.

    I know about the Lancashire landing but I wondered if there are any other beaches that can be landed on?

    Brighton beach is all pebbles,which kind of rules out a few others too, but on the whole every club will know of a few to go play and land on

    Most seem to be tidal which have the benefit of generally being firm, wide open and not prone to sunbathers.

    Skeggy is on the east coast
    I’m on the beach in the yellow Quantum. Damp firm sand.....not too dry

    That looks bl**dy fantastic! Really great.
    Been to Skeggy (by car). Given its latitude, it could arguably by classed as Northern. A bit.
    WDYT?
