You might end up here by bike looking for Benacre Broad, a small area of wetland with a nature reserve. It turns out not to have any obvious advertised access to the public and a tidal breach in 2011 means it's not strictly a broad no more, they say.
The village used to house the servants of Benacre Hall and it's owned by the landed Gooch family.
Invoking one of the lesser-known commandments, they won't let you into St Michael's Church and they haven't even laid on a shop selling any pop!
Thirsty work this cycling.
There's access to the sea via Beach Farm, which is about a mile east of the village, but you'll have to lock your cycles at the stile and walk the rest of the way.
The dead trees and this dune-y landscape has an unworldly feel and it's all home to a grey seal, not shown, who might cock a flipper at your arrival.
