Dodman Point, Cornwall

Dodman Point is a vast headland projecting out into the channel from South Cornwall, England. Heavily fortified with two foreboding ramparts and ditches cut into the ground it would have been used as a promontory fort, protecting Cornwall from seaward armies. It is though that fortifications were first built there sometime in the Iron Age . It is now also home to a large granite cross used as a beacon to protect ships from the headland. Dodman Point is found near Mevagissey , a once busy fishing port that now finds most of its income from local tourism and pleasure vessels. Its closet village however is Gorran Haven, a small fishing village sheltered by the jutting rock.
