SX4350 : The Institute, Kingsand

taken 10 years ago, near to Kingsand, Cornwall, Great Britain

The Institute, Kingsand
The Institute, Kingsand
The Institute in Kingsand was built in 1911 to celebrate the coronation of King George V - its clocktower being a famous local landmark. There are photos showing waves crashing so hard in this bay that a great volume of spray is seen going over the top of the clocktower. Such a photo used to be in the nearby Halfway House PH, but I'm not sure if it's still there.
The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand seamlessly merge with one another, but historically Kingsand was in Devon, while Cawsand was in Cornwall. In 1844 however the boundary was redrawn along the Tamar and Kingsand returned to Cornwall.
