SW8469 : Bedruthan Step: Queen Bess Rock

taken 9 years ago, near to Engollan, Cornwall, England

Bedruthan Step: Queen Bess Rock
Bedruthan Step: Queen Bess Rock
To the left is the northernmost of the five named rocks (or stacks, or islands) at Bedruthan Steps. It was named for Queen Elizabeth I, whom it resembled until a storm in 1982 broke off the head; this was the shape before the storm: SW8469 : Queen Bess Rock 1935.

In the centre and some distance back, is Diggory's Island, which does not seem to be one of the Steps.
