Man Haven
When I was 10/11 (I'm now 63) the beach was lined with fishing boats and fishermen were busy with their chores. I wasn't hard to imagine smugglers being here in years gone by. I have a feeling vandalism became a problem with keeping boats here and I haven't seen any here for a long time. The steps leading down into the bay appear to have been restored and a guard rail installed which implies some kind of activity may still take place possibly in the summer months by amateur fishermen.
