Day 3 - St Pandennis Castle -> Kenyance Cove -> Lizard Point -> Newlyn Town Centre -> cook Dinner

Next stop is Pendennis Castle and we stayed a short while here before heading to Kynance Cove & then Lizard Point.
Pendennis Castle is an artillery fort constructed by Henry VIII near Falmouth, Cornwall, England between 1540 and 1542. It formed part of the King's Device programme to protect against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire, and defended the Carrick Roads waterway at the mouth of the River Fal. The original, circular keep and gun platform was expanded at the end of the century to cope with the increasing Spanish threat, with a ring of extensive stone ramparts and bastions built around the older castle. Pendennis saw service during the English Civil War, when it was held by the Royalists, and was only taken by Parliament after a long siege in 1646. It survived the interregnum and Charles II renovated the fortress after his restoration to the throne in 1660. It now houses various war exhibits.

Enroute to Keynance Cove

It was very widny here

Took a slow stroll downhill

After leaving Keynance, next stop was Lizard Point

Lizard Point (from Cornish an Lysardh, meaning "the high court") in Cornwall is at the most southern tip of the Lizard Peninsula & Grat Britain. It is situated half-a-mile (800 m) south of Lizard village in the civil parish of Landewednack and about 11 miles (18 km) southeast of Helston. With the exception of parts of the Isles of Scilly it is the southernmost part of England.

And then it was back to Newlyn. This is the small town centre.

We then returned to bnb to cook dinner.
