While we were on The Mount this chap was taking aerial photos of the castle for a magazine and he used this drone for the purpose. Fascinating! It has just arrived back to its handler safely!
This is a Type 24 pillbox situated on the western side of the castle. It is concrete-block constructed and as there are no current threats from the Krauts now the gardeners use it for storage!!!

A view of the town from the castle,
Known locally as "The Mount" this is a small tidal island in Mount's Bay, Cornwall. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway. The castle and chapel have been home to the St Aubyn family since approximately 1650. The earliest buildings on the summit date back to the 12th century and the harbour is 15th century. Depending on the tides you can get there via the causeway or by boat if the tide is in. We sailed out and walked back!!!
And another superb beach!
One of the many picturesque beaches and coves in this area.
