On Carregwastad Point
On Carregwastad Point
The memorial marks the invasion on 22 February 1797 by a small French force. It is difficult to work out what they hoped to achieve, landing in such a remote spot, though they no doubt assumed that it would take some time for a defending army to be sent there. However they appear to have been a somewhat ill-disciplined bunch, for it is said that they got drunk and surrendered to the local population two days later!
