Sennen Cove Harbour

View of Sennen Cove harbour from the end of the breakwater with the Roundhouse just left of centre. Note this photo was taken in the 1980s when the lifeboat station (the building on the left edge of the picture) still had its original roof.

Sennen Cove Harbour is a small beach and slipway, sheltered on its western side by a breakwater against the force of the Atlantic Ocean. To the eastern side, the harbour is bounded by the launch ramp of the Sennen Cove lifeboat station.

The harbour slipway is usually filled with small fishing boats.

The Roundhouse building, shown in the picture above, still contains the old capstan wheel, which was once used to haul boats up the slipway from the sea.
