St Mawes Gets Own Monopoly Board

St Mawes has become the smallest place in the world to get its own Monopoly board.

The local butcher and baker feature, as well as more well known sights like the castle and King Harry Ferry.

A mooring fee replaces the 'super tax' and you get fined for jumping off the harbour.

It was dreamt up by local guesthouse owner Amelia Whittaker. She said, "I love living here. A day doesn't go by without me waking up thinking how lucky I am. It's about St Mawes having its own game on a global level for people living around the world to take a slice of St Mawes away with them.

"We've got the harbourmaster's office, we've got the beautiful St Mawes Castle, St Anthony's Lighthouse. It's hopefully as true a version as I could give of the village. But although, obviously, I can't include everyone. That's my only sadness."
