Questions like these can be discussed with the voluntary team at the Prawle Point National Coastwatch who warmly welcome visitors at their centre. Not only are they proud to show you what they do but can recount the many incidents they have had to deal with and the history associated with the lookout which in one form or another has been standing since the 1860’s. Prawle is old English for lookout and in medieval times it is possible that a chapel dedicated to Saint Brendan stood on this site. Thanks must go to the National
Trust for protecting this unspoilt coastline and I have listed the web address of a detailed circular walk on their site providing information of points of interest along the way. Likewise, the informative site of the National Coastwatch is also detailed. I hope my photographs help to
capture the uniqueness and moods of the area and I look forward to sharing another of “my favourite places” next time.
