THE COB- pier that featured in the movie "The French Lieutenant's Woman" The day I was there extensive works were being carried out along the shore line to counter erosion. The cob is also used for an annual rememberance day to raise money for charity. Candles that are placed all along the cob are sold and numbered (so you know the position of yours, map suplied) then with the help of volunteers, they are all lit one night. I could not make it to see them lit as I was working, but it must be a very moving and spectacular sight.
