MONUMENT NO. 870634

DESCRIPTION + /

Post Medieval features on St Michael's Mount. By 1425 St Michael's Mount had become a garrisoned fortress and was given to Humphry Arundell at the Dissolution when it then was defended by three soldiers. Between 1612 and 1641 this number increased to a garrison of 12. There was a stronge garrison of Royalists present during the Civil War who held it until it was taken by seige in 1646. The Mount was purchased by John St Aubyn in 1659 and converted into a private residence (SW 52 NW 18). Much of the monastic ruins were replaced with new rooms by the end of the 18th century and a new wing was built in 1887.
