Bolt Head and Bolt Tail, Devon
Bolt-Head and Bolt-Tail, two headlands on the coast of Devon; the former at the W side of the mouth of Salcombe haven, the latter 4½ miles NW by W of this, and 3 SSE of the mouth of the river Avon. Bolt-Head is 430 feet high, wild, desolate, and torn with fissures and caverns. Bolt-Tail is pierced at the shore by Eamillias Cove, which is named from the wrecking of the Ramillias frigate at it in 1760. See BOLTBURY.
