The keep at St Mawes which was built at the same time as Pendennis Castle across the river by King Henry VIII


St Mawes Castle from the approach road

When seen from the approach road you can see that the keep wasn't very defensible from the land, it was intended to defend the entrance to the harbour from invasion by France or Spain.


St Mawes and Pendennis Castles from St Mawes village

Looking back at both St Mawes and Pendennis Castles from the road into the village.

Further into the village St Mawes Castle is hidden from view, Pendennis is still visible.



Shipping off Falmouth

Looking out to sea there are ships waiting to come into the dry dock in Falmouth or just for orders for their next cargo.

A closer view of the village curving around the shore line.


Old petrol pump in St. Mawes

This old petrol pump is in the village by the harbour.  At 2s 3d (11.5p!) a gallon it's hardly surprising they've sold out!  Also of note is the AA sign with its very accurate distance to London 263 1/4 miles!




St Mawes harbour

The heart of the village is around its harbour as seen here.
