St Mawes Castle, East Side Bastion

St Mawes Castle in Cornwall, England. A view looking towards the east side bastion of this 400 year old Cornish fortress. St Mawes Castle, along with Pendennis Castle on the opposite shore at Falmouth, were built in the 1540s, to guard the entrance to Carrick Roads. Also pictured here is the lower, forward bastion on the left, the roof gun platform with the lookout turret above it, and right is the bridge.
