SX4852 : Mount Batten Beach and Cattewater

taken 19 days ago, near to Turnchapel, Plymouth, Great Britain

Mount Batten Beach and Cattewater
Mount Batten Beach and Cattewater
The grassland above Batten Bay offers a panoramic vista across Plymouth Sound, the City of Plymouth and Cattewater. In this view Mount Batten beach and headland are in the middle distance. Mount Batten was named after a Captain Batten who defended the headland in the Civil War - it has nothing to do with Lord Louis Mountbatten, Prince of Battenberg, although that subtlety seems to have been lost on whoever named the terrace of modern town houses behind the beach 'Lord Louis Crescent'.
