The Pilchard Inn

Dated from 1336 The Inn on the shore of Burgh Island, Bigbury On Sea, is believed to of been guest lodgings for the monastery which once stood where the famous hotel now stands. A small band of fisherman took over the lodgings after the dissolution of the monastery & this is how the Inn got it's name.The sea tractor is used to get people trapped by the in coming tide back across to the mainland.

Excellent shot Martin, the sand tractor is an icon in itself- always think of Poirot when I see pics of it.
