Harry Furlong (Harry Furlough) Buoy
Harry Furlong (Harry Furlough) Buoy
This is an old Trinity House buoy formerly used to mark Harry Furlong's Rocks (Harry Furlough on the OS map)at Cemlyn Bay. A local character named 'Harris' is reputed to have extinguished beacon lights that marked the rocks at Cemlyn, thus wrecking them on the rocks. The rocks were a furlong distance from the shore. Over time the name is supposed to have changed to Harry Furlough (Furlong) Rocks. The stone beacon was changed to a green conical buoy in the late 1960's. [SH3394]
