Warspite Memorial, Prussia Cove
Warspite Memorial, Prussia Cove
This is the Warspite Memorial, on the headland between Prussia Cove and Cudden Point. The Warspite, a battleship built in 1913 and the eighth to be given that name, took part in many sea battles in the second world war. She was on her way to be broken up when she ran aground on the rocks, and the memorial marks this spot. The memorial itself is actually wood from the ship itself.
