one day my father carried me on his shoulders from the beach , along the rocks to look at the wreck of a landing craft , I remember this vividly because he slipped on the rocks and we both went into the sea ,
we did see the wreck though !
That was probably 60 years ago , today 13/8/18 I went back with my 11 year old grandson (Kyran) .
There is no sign of any wreck , but 60 years is a long time ! BUT YES IT HAD BEEN THERE

I think what you were looking at was the remains of a landingcraft wedged in a cleft of a cliff known as straight point. I spent many hours fishing around there .
regards Eric.

I, too, loved the experience and he also put me to work and I actually got to drive the boat along the coastline.
