SW6423 : HMS Anson Monument and Loe Bar

taken 7 years ago, near to Gunwalloe, Cornwall, Great Britain

HMS Anson Monument and Loe Bar
HMS Anson Monument and Loe Bar
This monument commemorates the men of HMS Anson, who were drowned when the ship ran around here in 1807 and they could not get ashore. As a result local man Henry Trengrouse invented the rock life-saving apparatus, which has prevented similar deaths.
Beyond is Loe Bar, originally an inlet to the River Loe that allowed ships to reach Helston, but subsequently partly naturally and partly man-assisted was closed off by this bar.
