  Dodman Point
by ettenaj

A striking headland between Falmouth and Plymouth, Dodman has been the site of many shipwrecks. In1896 a local parson had this granite cross erected to act as a landmark for shipping. However it failed to save two war ships the year after. More recently in 1966 the Darlwin pleasure boat sank with all its passengers.
