The Tapps Arms, a public house, appeared on the moor in eighteen hundred and nine, only a few of years later, in 1812, the first people, a retired army officer and wife, moved in.
Lewis Tregonwell and his wife bought a patch of land, off Sir George Ivison Tapps, on which they built a few villas with a sea view with the idea of letting them for the summer for vacations. Lewis Tregonwell also built themselves a summerhouse. and also began to plant many hundreds of pine trees, making a gorgeous sheltered walk to the beach, , which later gained the name of the Invalid's walk.
