About Us

Sharkham Point is the headland to the south of St Mary's Bay. From here there are excellent views of St Mary’s Bay and the heritage coast beyond. There are further panoramic views from the coastal path that passes above the beach.

Beneath its cloak of trees and grass Sharkham hides a rich industrial heritage. Through the late 18th and early 19th century, it was home to a thriving iron oxide paint industry, the finished product being shipped all over the world. In the 20th century, these excavations became a municipal dump! Now capped and grassed Sharkham provides the quiet antidote to Berry Head's bustle.
