   The picture is based on the gardens below the Town Hall, from certain angles one can see a zig-zag pattern in the paths, hence the image being chosen for the letter Z in the book.

  I was attracted to the curve of the railings, steps and the council workers who were busy clipping the bushes ( of which there are many) in the gardens. A great route down to the beach from the cliff top. If you don't fancy the climb back up then a short walk will bring you to the Cliff Lift
