Behind me, just after I had taken the previous photograph, I noticed the sign on the wall pictured above; check out the names on the First World War Roll of Honour.

You will have noticed St. Mawes Castle in the first photograph.  It was built between 1539 and 1545 by Henry VIII, one of a series of artillery forts designed to defend the coast against a possible invasion from France and Spain.  Another fort, Pendennis Castle, can just be seen across the mouth of the estuary to the far right of the picture.
