Hi thank you for your comment:)
The whalebone was erected c. 1876 from the remains of a beached whale. The area here has old fisherman's huts, it was a prolific fishing area. The local council have kept the whalebone in situ over the years. it did fall down a few years back but has now been cemented into the ground. It takes a fair pounding from the elements in it's position. The seas here can be very wild.
