Most people today think of the area of Southgate as "Pennard" and indeed the names have become almost interchangeable. Pennard church, in fact, stands alone on the Western edge of Kittle, just up the road from Parkmill. Despite the confusion with names, this area is very popular with walkers. The views from Pennard Castle and the area around Three Cliffs are stunning. More information and photos of this area can be found on the Pennard Burrows and Three Cliffs links.
