Looe Island

Looe Island

Peek between the trees over to Looe Island located around a mile off the coast of Looe.

The island has plenty of history including being home to a small monastery and later the haunt of smugglers. In the 1970s the island was bought by two sisters, Babs and Evelyn Atkins. They lived out their lives there with the youngest sister dying in 2004 aged 86.

The island was left to Cornwall Wildlife Trust and will remain a nature reserve.
