Good Evening - almost the weekend Smile

Still trawling the archives and as we're just about to pay for this year's Team W.A.S.P. Tour, I had yet another archive trawl, this time through last year's "invasion" of Cornwall.

We had given up on a sunrise location, but popped along to Pendennis castle without a lot of hope, to be greeted with a rather nice sunrise after all Smile

I've added a few details to show I can use Google too Tongue

Originally constructed between 1540 and 1545, Pendennis and its sister, St Mawes Castle, (also an English Heritage property), form the Cornish end of the chain of coastal artillery fortresses built by Henry VIII to counter a threat from France and Spain. In 1598, during Elizabeth I's reign, a new and much larger type of defensive rampart was added around the original fort. The castle was strengthened again prior to the Civil War and played host to the future Charles II in 1646, before he sailed to the Isles of Scilly. It then withstood five months of siege, before becoming the penultimate Royalist garrison on the British mainland to surrender.


Hope you like, have a great evening and Thanks as always for stopping by Smile

Off to attend to my chicken casserole - catch up soon

Cheers!
