The Lowestoft Fleet in Gwavas Lake, off Newlyn, c1860.

The area of Mounts Bay is given this name of Gwavas Lake because in ancient times there was a stretch of land between St Michael’s Mount and Newlyn, with a large lake, separated from the sea by a forest. The area was flooded by the sea in 1099. The forest roots can still be seen at very low tides.
