Prussia Cove cut out harbour and tracks
Prussia Cove cut out harbour and tracks
According to Cornish Magazine; "...so sheltered and secluded that it is impossible to see what boats are in the little harbour until one literally leans over the edge of the cliff above; a harbour cut out of the solid rock and a roadway with wheel-tracks, partly cut and partly worn, climbing up the face of the cliff on either side of the cove, caves and the remains of caves everywhere, some of them with their mouths built up which are reputed to be connected with the house above by secret passages these are still existing trademarks left by one of the most enterprising smuggling gangs that Cornwall has ever known"
