Great Fort George Monk’s Hill

At the summit of Monk's Hill, this fort is one of the earliest attempts at fortifying the entrance to Falmouth Harbour, built in 1689.

You must walk the last mile unless you have a good four-wheel drive vehicle. Ruins of the original buildings, water cisterns, magazines and sites for the original 33 cannons can still be viewed, as well as wonderful views of Falmouth Habour and the surrounding countryside.
