Cowes and East Cowes grew from a huddle of fishermen's shacks around two coastal forts built by Henry VIII on opposite banks of the River Medina and named after the two off-shore sandbanks or cows. The towns are linked by an old-fashioned chain ferry and have a tradition of fine ship building, dating from the reign of Elizabeth I. Then came the yacht building industry and the rest is history! Many people choose to have a base in the centre of Cowes and it is now possible to do so in the best possible situation and style.
Waitrose has decided to invest in Cowes - they have recently opened their supermarket very close to our apartment, just on the other side of the chain link ferry, and close to the Red Funnel berth in East Cowes.
