An Early Morning Walk In St Mawes



A lovely early walk from the centre of St Mawes up to the Castle, but looking at that sky you can see within a few minutes the rain came pouring down!

Henry VIII had St Mawes Castle, which is still beautifully preserved built to protect Falmouth Harbour and guard the entrance to the safe anchorage in the Carrick Roads. Three huge circular bastions arranged in a cloverleaf pattern with multiple gun ports were formidable defences!

Today the Castle stands intact and although re-fortified throughout its history, it is a Tudor time capsule waiting to be explored. It is set in landscaped grounds, providing excellent views of the coastline and across to Falmouth.


I am an enthusiastic professional in estate agency and property management business. I have purchased, renovated, rented and sold property. I give advice and guidance both to students and first time buyers and those leaving home for the first time. I have four books selling on Amazon currently and almost finished the fifth. I decided as a form of relaxing to start writing a blog about everything coastal, so here it is!
