St. Michael's mount

St. Michael's mount is located in Marazion Cornwall, about 9 miles from the Lizard peninsula. The castle of St. Michael's was dated back to the 12th century, and was owned by St Aubyn family since the 17th century. In the 1954 Francis St Aubyn, the 3rd Lord St Levan, gave St. Michael's mount and a large endowment fund to the national trust, retaining a 999-year lease for the family to live in the castle. While the national trust now handles and ensures the preservation and conservation of the mount, St Aubyn family still continue to live and manage the island as they have done since the 17th century.

I have taken some photos of the said mount and its surroundings.

This is how it looks like when its low tide, usually around 4pm in the afternoon. You can walk going to the mount and back to landing point at Marazoin.

These motorboats carry’s passenger during high tide, from the landing point in Marazion to the mount.

This is the small village of the mount.
