St Mawes Castle from the Ferry by Rod Johnson

St Mawes Castle from the Ferry

St Mawes Castle at the southern tip of the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall, England. This scene was captured south of Castle Point, on the approach to St Mawes, from onboard one of the Falmouth to St Mawes ferries.

The 400 years old castle is one of the best preserved of Henry VIII's coastal artillery forts. This castle, along with Pendennis Castle at Falmouth on the opposite headland, were built in the 1540s, to protect the vast waterway known as Carrick Roads.
