The Mewstone – Wembury
A distinctive feature visible from Wembury Beach is the Mewstone, a triangular island which is uninhabited. In the past it has been host to a prison and a private home, as well as a refuge for local smugglers. Its most infamous resident was Sam Wakeman who avoided transportation to Australia in favour of the cheaper option of transportation to the Mewstone, where he was interned for seven years. After his internment on the island he remained there paying his rent by supplying rabbits for the Manor House table. It is said Sam Wakeman is responsible for carving the rough stone steps to the summit of the Mewstone. Wembury itself is a village on the south coast of Devon, England, very close to Plymouth Sound within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South West Coast Path goes past the coastal end of the town.
