And finally, down Clarendon Road to west Cliff Road again.

A really pleasant walk in the Sylvan area between West Cliff and Westbourne. This walk will take you along West Cliff Road, up Grosvenor Road, along Portarlington and back down Clarendon Road to West Cliff Road again.
This is a route that will make you believe you are walking through dense woodland with trees and shrubs crowding in on every side. And what's more the foliage is infinitely more varied than any countryside walk.

Opposite the Wessex Hotel there's a little footpath that runs down to the West Cliff between two mighty blocks. These, I think, are some species of Pine. Possibly Monterey. But they certainly hold their own against the massive concrete and brick structures hemming them in.

This is the bravest tree I know, growing between a tarmac-ed car park and a busy roundabout. Not much room for its roots but is a beautiful, tall tree. I'm still not very good at identification yet but I think its a Monterey Cypress. Anyone know better?
