SW4941 : Pen Enys Point

taken 12 years ago, 3 km from Halsetown, Cornwall, Great Britain

Pen Enys Point
Pen Enys Point
Seen from above Hor Point. The bay in front of Pen Enys Point is marked on the 1:25000 map as "Zawn Quoits". Zawn is, I understand, a West Cornish dialect word for a steep sided inlet or chasm and Quoit normally refers to a neolithic monument. However, I am afraid that I don't know what feature of the bay, if any, that this name refers to.
