Narrative

Island nearly 0.5 mi long, lying midway between Heywood Island and the W extremity of Robert Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The feature was first described as an island in the approaches to Clothier Harbor, but was not named, by Robert Fildes in 1820-22. It was seen from a distance and named Cornwall Point by DI personnel in 1934-35. Air photos now confirm that the feature is an island.
