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!
