Carew Tide Mill news:

Please note that Carew causeway will be closed for essential maintenance for a number of weeks from Monday 22 February onwards.  Although at present we are not allowed to travel due to covid it is possible this restriction will be lifted before the maintenance work is complete so it may not be feasible to celebrate by walking to the tide mill just yet.
