Our Projects - St Catherine's Point

In 2012 Historic Environment Projects, Cornwall Council was commissioned by The National Trust to carry out an archaeological survey of multi-period earthworks and structures at St Catherine’s Point and Covington Wood, Fowey, Cornwall. The survey mapped in detail the remains from several periods of human activity on the headland spanning over 2,000 years, and includes an Iron Age promontory fort, medieval castle, Tudor fort, the 19th century Rashleigh mausoleum and WWII gun emplacements. During the survey a series of open days were also held to enable the public to see the on-going survey work and talk with the archaeologists about their recent discoveries.
