Tunnels Beaches - Gentlemen's beach - Ilfracombe
The so-called "Gentlemen's beach" at the Tunnels Beaches attraction in Ilfracombe. There was originally a tidal pool here, the "Gentlemen's Pool" but this has been swept away by time, tide and weather, there are plans however to recreate it. As the name suggests, this beach (and pool) were reserved for male bathers - until 1905 when mixed bathing was finally considered acceptable. For more information on these beaches see SS5147 : Tunnels Beaches - Ladies' pool - Ilfracombe
