Argall's Series postcard of the Manacle Bell Buoy, 1904. A buoy is an anchored float serving as a navigation mark, to show reefs or other hazards. The Manacles (Cornish: Meyn Eglos, meaning church stones) are a set of treacherous rocks off The Lizard peninsula. The top of St Keverne church spire is visible from the area. The rocks are rich in marine wildlife and they are a popular spot for diving due to the many shipwrecks.
