As you leave Westport you are aware of the sliver of flat land between the ocean and the soaring mountain ranges. Your first stop will starkly illustrate the lack of arable land and the impact of climate change on the small West Coast settlements. Granity is a must do visit stop for everyone interested in climate change. You stand on the contructed stoney embankments and watch the sea relentlessly working away at the foundations. And the nearest houses are very close. There is a notice and plaque showing where the community hall once stood. It is sobering watching the rising sea rewrite land boundaries. Granity is a historic gold & coal mining town.
