The castle is one of the best preserved and most elaborately decorated of Henry VIII’s coastal fortresses, St Mawes was built to counter invasion threats from France and Spain. The clover-leaf shaped fort fell easily to landward attack by Parliamentarian forces in 1646, and was not properly refortified until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Take a look at the Evolve site for the KMZ file of St Mawes as well as Worcestershire Beacon.
