The peninsula running out from the isthmus rises to an elevation of 110 feet; has the kind of character designated by the Celtic word "heugh;'' and probably gave rise to the name Hugh-Town. The town has a crooked main street of stone houses; an excellent harbour in the Pool; a pier 430 feet long, reconstructed in 1835-8; two good inns; and a church built in 1835, in the pointed style, with a tower, and with memorials of those who perished in the wreck of three men of war, in Oct. 1707, under Sir Cloudesley Shovel. Extracts from Goring, Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales, 1870-72
