On Pennyland Rocks in Looe harbour entrance is a memorial to Nelson, a one-eyed, scarred, bull Grey Seal. Nelson was a familiar sight in the harbours of south Cornwall for over 25 years and eventually he made Looe Island his home and Looe harbour his dining room where he was fed and his company enjoyed by local fishermen, townsfolk and countless visitors for over 20 years. He was a "Grand Old Man of the Sea" and a great favourite with all. Sadly Nelson died in 2003 but such was his popularity that this life-size bronze sculpture by Suzie Marsh was placed on Pennyland Rocks and unveiled by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston CBE on 28th May 2008. In addition to the unveiling ceremony the statue of Nelson was blessed and then honoured with a flypast by 849 Naval Air Squadron.
