The cove and Rumps Point, Port Quin, St Endellion, Cornwall. 1906

View of the cove at Port Quin and Doyden castle with the Rumps in the distance. Doyden Castle looks more like a castellated folly than a proper castle. It overlooks Lundy bay and was built in 1830 by Samuel Symons as a place to entertain his friends. The Rumps is a twin-headland promontory at the north-east corner of Pentire Head in north Cornwall. Port Quin was once a busy fishing port and is said to have been mostly abandoned after all of the fishermen from the village were lost during a storm in the 19th century.
