Poole Harbour is the second biggest natural harbour in the world (Sydney is bigger), it is also very popular with sailing enthusiasts.
Some say it is an eyesore I disagree, but it was not needed in this position as a cinema.Very good restaurant on top floor with good views
Carn Gloose is actually south-east of Cape Cornwall. The 70-fathom level of Cape Cornwall Mine extends for 170 fathoms north-west of the Cape. Until about 1905 there were actually two engine houses on the south side of the Cape!
In fact this should not be called Cape Cornwall... A cape is defined as where two major bodies of water meet and it was presumed that this headland was the most westerly in Cornwall and therefore where the Atlantic and (possibly) the Celtic Sea/St George's Channel met. Until the Ordnance Survey in 1801 when it was discovered that Lands End was further west. However the headland was already named, as was Lands End, so the name stuck.
Thank you for looking at my photo and for the info. I will look out for the book in the library.
