Reverend Hawkers Hut, Morwenstow, Cornwall. 9th July 1913

A man inside Hawker's Hut on the cliffs close to Sharpnose Point, about a mile from Morwenstow. It was built by the eccentric clergyman, poet and antiquarian Robert Stephen Hawker (1803-1875). He was known to rescue shipwrecked sailors and also recovered the bodies of the dead washed onto the shore, for a Christian burial. He composed the well known Cornish anthem The Song of the Western Men, also known as Trelawney in 1824. Photographer: Herbert Hughes
