News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

All Hallows Coastguard Cottage
« Reply #1 on: March 07, 2013, 09:23:03 »
Smugglers have always been a huge problem to police and as a result many Coastguard Cottages were constructed around the coast to catch smugglers bringing goods ashore.  At All Hallows the Coastguard Cottage can still be seen, although now a private residence with a bay window which gave a lovely clear view out to sea.  This building was also in use as a Port War Signal station until 1923.
