Photographer's Note

"Still home to the St.Aubyn family, as well as a small community, this iconic rocky island is crowned by a medieval church and a castle - with the oldest buildings dating from the 12th century." [National Trust website.]

Looking down from the castle we can see the small harbour that serves the island.This stretch of sea is a part of Mount's Bay.

There is a causeway at low tide, which can be walked from the island to the mainland or vice versa.But if the causeway is covered by the sea, then it is a choice of swimming, or getting the boat across.
In the distance is the community of Marazion, and if you follow the road west you will reach the town of Penzance.
