Historic quay at Lamorna "dynamited" by powerful wave
LAMORNA’S historic quay has been the latest piece of Cornwall to be smashed by the atrocious weather conditions.
A member of the public, who wanted to remain anonymous, has sent in a number of images showing the effects a barrage of powerful waves had on the structure - with one causing a large chunk of it to crumble.
In an email, they said: “The force of the wave suggests the quay has been dynamited.
“The lumps of granite which were dislodged by the wave can be seen lying on the surface of the remainder of the quay.”
