Foreland Fields, Isle of Wight

Foreland Fields is a part of Bembridge- which claims to be Europe's largest village, consisting of bungalows built in the 1970s, but for a pub called the "Crab and Lobster"- a dining and seafood pub of almost legendary status, overlooking Bembridge ledge, an area formerly popular with shipwrecks and smuggling, but also for crab and lobster fishing. There is a Coastguard Station and remains of a wartime pillbox on the beach.
