Secret route to the beach

Jack Rowe



Interviewer: You went to school at the Port Isaac School which is now known as the Old School Hotel. I remember your brother Peter saying you had a special secret route down to the harbour by going over the wall and down to the beach.

Jack Rowe: Little hill and then straight down over.

Interviewer: And there was a competition who could get to the beach first?

Jack Rowe: I used to get down there in no time! Damn dangerous but I never looked at it as being dangerous then. They would today, they wouldn't allow it.

Interviewer: Health and safety wouldn't allow it (laughs).
