This is a town and port on the River Tal on the south coast of Cornwall. It is famous for its harbour and together with Carrick Roads it forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world and the deepest in Western Europe. It is also famous for being the start or finish point for various round-the-world record-breaking voyages such as those of Sir Francis Chichester. It is also the site where Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle to defend Carrick Roads in 1540, and the reason we were visiting the port.
