Coverack is a coastal village in Cornwall, situated in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and it has become a favourite destination for surfers, divers and fans of other water sports. The Manacles are in fact a large underwater reef system to Coverack and as they have been the cause of many shipwrecks, they are a favourite haunt of divers, hoping for ‘treasure.’ However, sadly, in the winter storms of 2013-14, Coverack was badly hit and the main road into the village was closed for three months after the February 2014 storms. The sea walls were also badly damaged by the storms, with the road running along them collapsing and separating the village into two parts, with no access for vehicles.
The Manacles offered smugglers opportunities for plying their illegal trade, and as fishermen, they would have known the Manacles very well and have been able to navigate so that their vessels came to no harm. Had you survived a shipwreck on the Manacles, you may have been able to file a personal injury compensation claim if only there had been solicitors in Coverack and such claims to file.
