Hawker's Hut

The Rev. Hawker is a famous local vicar who preached at Morwenstow Church durng the Victorian Period. He was famous for inventing the "modern" harvest festival and for helping sailors who were shipwrecked on the shores of North Crnwall and Devon.
His hut is a short walk from the church along the cliff tops.
He used to sit in it and write poetry.

Our trip gave us the perfect opportunity to imagine what it must be like to be in a ship on stromy seas as it involved gale force winds and driving rain !!!

Having reached Hawker's Hut we headed for his church which was the perfect place to take refuge from the storm.

We had a wonderfully dramatic trip out - hopefully the next one will involve less waterproofs and much more sunshine !!
