About St Mary's
You can't miss the Telegraph Tower, built in 1803 for the defence of the island and from which, 95 years later, Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of the radio, received radio signals from a distance of 30 miles, a milestone at the time. Later the tower was used to broadcast Radio Scilly.
Throughout its history the island was a strategic location for the British Crown. As a result some attractions that you can visit are Harry's Walls which are the remains of an artillery castle, the 8-point-star shaped fortification of The Garrison and Star Castle near the pier, which was built in 1593 fearing a new attack by the Kingdom of Spain, Peninnis Head lighthouse and the Memorial at Porthellick Cove, which marks the site where the body of Admiral Shovell was found after one of the worst naval disasters in British history in 1707.
