Brean, UK
November 5, 2008

Brean Down is a promontory off the coast of Somerset standing 320 feet (98 m) high and extending 1.5 miles (2 km) into the Bristol Channel between Weston-super-Mare and Burnham on Sea.

Made of carboniferous limestone, it is a continuation of the Mendip Hills, and two further continuations are the small islands of Steep Holm and Flat Holm.

It is now owned by the National Trust, and is rich in wildlife, history and archaeology. It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There are steep cliffs and, at its seaward point, a Brean Down Fort built in 1865 and then re-armed in the Second World War.

Also, today just so happend to be the 53rd anniversary of the day in which Doc Brown fell off of his toliet while hanging his clock, hit his head and came up with the idea for the flux capacitor!
