DISCOVERING OUR COAST: 

ST. MICHAEL’S MOUNT CORNWALL:

BROOKE BOND OXO LTD 

CARD 32 IN A SERIES OF 50

 
 

Before the Romans came to Britain 

the little harbour at the foot of the Mount 

was a centre where tin was traded with the Phoenicians

It has been famous ever since. 

In turn priory, fortress and stately home

this memorable of coastal buildings 

occupies a superb defensive position 

high on its granite cone and surrounded by the sea. 

Only at low tide does a stone causeway

 give access to the mainland. 

In Armada Year a warning beacon flared from the Mount, 

and in the Civil War a century later 

it was a Royalist stronghold

The home of the same family for the past 300 years, 

the Mount has been presented to the National Trust 

while the family stays on as its tenant.
