Wreckers return to plunder Morte Point

130 people turned up to our Wreckers and Smugglers Walk on Thursday evening and were held spellbound by the ‘Captain of the West’ who told us exciting stories and songs of pirates, shootings, smuggling and oven-ready geese (yes really). Out on the Point a trusty band of volunteer wreckers lured in an unsuspecting ship before fighting the surviving sailors and helping themselves to the cargo of barrels and bottles.

Then with the sun setting behind Lundy and Bull Point lighthouse signalling out to sea, we listened to haunting stories about mythical selkies before saying goodbye to the Captain.

A massive ‘thank you’ to Mark, colleagues and all the volunteers who gave up their evening to help run the event.
