Warspite had been aground here since April 1947 when she had been on her way to Faslane for breaking up. She eventually left in 1950 and was slowly broken up near Penzance.

The battleship appears partially stripped. Guns have gone from their turrets and part of the superstructure has been removed

yes, it was difficult getting the scrap up the narrow roads, it was refloated I think with the idea of getting it to Wales but it only got as far as Marazion where it was finally broken up
