Out & About

In 1807 HMS Anson was wrecked off the coast at Loe Bar. This ship was launched from Plymouth in 1781 and it fought in the Battle of Saintes near Dominica in 1782. It was subsequently strengthened and took part in the Napoleonic Wars. In 1807 it met its end when it broke its anchorage in Mount’s Bay and ran aground not far from Loe Bar. More than 120 sailors lost their lives and a memorial, commemorating their loss was erected at the south end of Loe Bar in 1949. The cannons which currently stand in Porthleven Harbour were salvaged from this ship in 1961.
