The Brisons from Sennan Cove
The Brisons from Sennan Cove
The name of these jagged slate outcrops that lurk in the deep off the Cornish coast comes from the local dialect "brissen", from the days when they were used as a prison for persistant criminals.
They were too often for centuries the last refuge for shipwrecked sailors.
These days they are only home to sea gulls and a yellow lichen.
