The story behind this image

Not the sort of warning notice you expect to find at the seaside!

I spotted this rather alarming sign affixed to the harbour wall at Ravenglass on the west coast of England's Lake District, and was so taken aback that I had to photograph it as a reminder of what it said.

My wife Liz and I had decided to call in at Ravenglass for a couple of hours in the evening during our long weekend break of July 2020, to have a wander around and watch the sunset over the sea.

So despite the warnings we did go for a walk along the beach, and very lovely it was too.

But I was slightly disappointed not to stumble across the odd bomb or missile in the process!
