Bishop and Clerks Light - Wikipedia
Bishop and Clerks Light MA.....Point Gammon and the offshore ledges known as Bishop (largest of the ledges) and Clerks (smaller rocks) were, for many years, scourges to mariners traveling near Hyannis along the south coast of Cape Cod—one writer dubbed them the “Scylla and Charybdis” of Nantucket Sound. The lighthouse established at Point Gammon in 1816 was a help, but it wasn’t sufficient to prevent vessels from running into the treacherous Bishop and Clerks ledges a mile or so offshore.
