Our Ten Favourite Benches, No. 2

A thousand couples have cut their initials into this tiny shack that looks like it was thrown at the cliff by a Celtic god.

Hawker's Hut, Morwenstow, north Cornwall

On this given day, Brian, Betty and Blue obliged. The hut, fashioned from driftwood by Parson Hawker, a poet-come-priest, is now under National Trust care. On a good day you can see past Tintagel to Pentire and with a pair of binoculars, the sheep on Lundy Island.
