Description

Porth-en-Alls ( Prussia Cove )

Part of Prussia Cove these old buildings are a prime example of how little the cove has changed over the past century or two. An example is the picture showing rare fishermen's cottages at the top of the old slipway. In April 1947 HMS Warspite ran aground whilst being towed for breaking, I believe it was a year or few before it was removed. The remote cove with the various old buildings dotted around ( many now holiday lets ) has been used as a film set- such as Poldark and Ladies in Lavender. The most famous resident of Prussia Cove has to John Carter, one of Cornwalls most notorious smugglers. His time dates from the late 18th century and as a child he is said to have acted as if he was the King of Prussia and in adult life became this notorious smuggler who was nicknamed " King of Prussia" and thus the area here took the name to this day.

A great image of these much photographed 'cottages'...... I like this long shot that shows their location, with the track disappearing into the distance.
