St Mawes Storms 2016

12 April 2016 - 9:46am


Once again St Mawes has been battered by some spectacular storms. A low pressure coupled with the spring tides and other factors resulted in some rather interesting conditions! Unfortunatly the Idles Rocks was once again flooded and the Ship & Castle cafe suffered some damaged. The folllowing days however were lovely with no wind and sunny skys. What a difference a day makes!

Storm surge hits St Mawes

6 February 2014 - 7:19pm

An interesting time in the village, the spring tides coupled with some deep low's have created some very high tides and winds and caused problems throughout the south west. St Mawes was hit hard and there' more to come. Residents of the village say they havent seen such violent sea's before, reinforcing the fact that this is quite unique. In addition January was one of the wettest seen, the fourth wettest since '75, and that brought its own problems inland with extensive flooding.
Here's a few photos of a stormy spring tide!

Record Fleet of 12 pilot Cutters heading for St Mawes

18 May 2011 - 6:11pm

This could be the biggest gathering of pilot cutters in the UK since the 19th Century when ports like Bristol and Falmouth were home to many pilot boats vying for the lucrative pilot trade.  We have only just counted the pilot cutters coming and it looks like we have at least 12 on their way to the West Country for a record turnout.

19 December 2010 - 12:00am

While the rest of the country may be going through arduous snowy conditions and sub zero tempertures, St Mawes has escaped almost all of it!
