Church and Castles

Past St Anthony Head we came to St Anthony’s Church and walked on from there into Emma’s Wood where we were able to see across the water to Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle. The (possibly apocryphal) story is that St Mawes was built because the cannon at Pendennis could only reach 1½ miles, but in the 3 years it took to build St Mawes, the reach of the cannon extended to 3 miles so the 2nd castle wasn’t actually needed by the time it was ready.
