This eliminates the confusion in readers' minds as it is also in the Folklore section. In fairly recent times it has been suggested that this period related to Mont St. Michel, where the beach is considerably more level. I believe O.J. Padel, who cites St. Michael beside the sea in the mid 11th century. Sorry about the reply I felt that I needed to give to your article on Helstonia by P. Carroll, but we in Helston have the evidences that Helston port was not a myth in any sense of the word. That article would have been far more serious in the Wikipedia than where you placed it! Regarding the formation of the Bay; although records from various sources state the date of its inundation - the only date that convinces me - it does not mean, as you rightly stated, that the Bay, before the 1755 tsunami, was formed then: it may well have been formed immediately after the Ice Age. I also have to correct what I put as to the west end of the Bay being pretty much as it is now, because the land in the map around the Gear rock was then land. 'Gear', as you already know, is likely to mean, 'fort'<Cornish KER, (long e). I shall not place any more messages on your Talk page, but mine is so long, that it is now difficult to see them. My due apologies! Werdna Yrneh Yarg (talk) 17:38, 7 August 2015 (UTC)Andrew

SS Northern Lights[edit]

I've had to unlink SS Northern Lights from the Cornwall and 1949 lists as there is another vessel of that name which has a redirect. If you can find a launch year for the 1949 stranding then the redirect can be turned into a shipindex page and correct links reinstated. Mjroots (talk) 17:22, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
