Peaked Rock, one of the Crim Rocks, and the westernmost point of England
|OS grid reference||SV802092|
|Archipelago||Isles of Scilly|
The Crim Rocks are the most westward of the archipelago's Western Rocks, therefore making them the westernmost point of England. They are approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north of Bishop Rock, and about 0.25 miles (0.40 km) southwest of Zantman's Rock. The name may be cognate with the Middle Welsh "crimp" meaning "shin, ridge, or ledge." The most conspicuous of the Crim Rocks is the Peaked Rock. At least thirty ships are known to have been wrecked on the Crims.
