Sweeney bear visited St Michael’s Mount with TBC Truro whilst raising money for Fisher House.

He learned that St Michael's Mount is a Cornish tidal island and a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water.  The earliest buildings on the summit date to the 12th century, the harbour is 15th century and the village and summit buildings were rebuilt from 1860 to 1900 to give the island its current form.  He made the most of the sunshine!
