Tom Parsons

SHIP WRECKING

Tom Parson’s Hut stands on the south side of Booby’s Bay. Its one-time occupant was a wrecker who, legend says, tied a lantern to the tail of a donkey, leading the animal along the clifftop, the swaying light misleading ships’ captains into thinking that here was an hospitable

port.

Recently the cottage has been acquired by the National Trust.
