Details

This beach is so named because the Duke of Monmouth landed here in 1685 in an attempt to wrest the crown from King James II. In the aftermath of Monmouth’s defeat, twelve locals were hanged on this beach on the order of the notorious “Hanging Judge” Jeffreys. Monmouth beach extends over a kilometre southwest from the Cobb wall. Bordering this beach are holiday chalets, beach huts, the bowling green and the council run car parks.
