More about

English Heritage is responsible for the care and presentation of an outstanding national collection of fine and decorative art, social history and archaeological artefacts from over 400 historic properties across England. Constructed between 1540 and 1545, Pendennis and its sister, St Mawes Castle, form the Cornish end of the chain of coastal castles built by Henry VIII to counter a threat from France and Spain. Thereafter, Pendennis was frequently adapted to face new enemies over 400 years, right through until World War II.
