Penlee Point, Rame
Penlee Point from the sea
Penlee Point (Cornish: Penn Legh, meaning stone-slab headland) is a coastal headland to the southeast of the village of Rame in southeast Cornwall, UK. The point lies at the entrance to Plymouth Sound.
Above the point, a little below the Coastal Path, is Queen Adelaide's Grotto, built in 1827/1828 to commemorate the visit of King William IV and Queen Adelaide to Mount Edgcumbe. Penlee Battery is the former site of a fort, and is now a nature reserve.
