Starehole Cove

Starehole Cove

Just past the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary between Bolt Head and Sharp Tor is the quiet Starehole Bay which includes Starehole Cove. A famous wreck called Herzogan Cecile, or as she was more affectionately known, the Duchess was the last of the truly great clipper ships and when she was breaking up in Starehole Bay in 1936 thousands came to mourn her passing. The remains can still be seen just under the surface at low tide today.
