H is for Hawker’s Cove

Hazardous and rocky, the Cornish coast gives those making their living from the sea plenty of reasons to think of the Lifeboat as their 1st Emergency Service.  In 1827 the RNLI established a boat at Hawker’s Cove and it was based there until the sixties when it was moved to Padstow, but the slipway and a row of coastguard cottages remain above a lovely beach.
