Porlock Bay is on the Bristol Channel, between Hurlstone Point and Porlock Weir in Somerset, England.
The coastline includes shingle ridges, salt marshes and a submerged forest. In 1052 the Saxon king, Harold, landed at Porlock Bay from Ireland, and burnt the town before marching on London.Much of the coastline is under the care of the National Trust, and the coastline forms part of the South West Coast Path.[source]
