Carrick Roads, Cornwall


  • Located in Falmouth, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Carrick Roads is part of the Fal Estuary. The best detailed description we've found of Carrick Roads is on an Exeter University projects website to which we provide a link. According to that site, Carrick Roads 'forms about 80% of the main water body of the estuary'
  • Running north of Falmouth and St. Mawes, Carrick Roads is characterised on most websites as a deepwater channel leading to the upper part of the Fal Estuary. One of the tributaries of this upper part leads to Truro
  • We've photographed Carrick Roads from both the Falmouth and St. Mawes sides of the Fal Estuary. The section of South West Coast Path running north west and north of St Mawes Castle to Newton Cliff is particularly beautiful. We'd also recommend taking the Falmouth/St Mawes Ferry across the water. Note that seasonal ferries run up and down the Fal Estuary from/to Falmouth Prince of Wales Pier to/from places such as Truro and Trelissick
