Glimpses Of Cornwall

Mevagissey

A few glimpses of Cornwall. Starting off with the village of Mevagissey above.

Next is the church in St Just-in-Roseland. It's said that Jesus may have visited the area.

Below is Newquay Fistral beach, which gets very busy in summer.

And to prove how cold it's been in Cornwall recently here are some icicles we saw when walking in Luxulyan Valley.

From about 3000 or more years ago is Trevethy Quoit - could well be older than Stonehenge.

And finally for this week Pentewan Harbour. In the mid to late 1800s it would have been full of sailing ships ready to take Cornish tin and minerals all around the world. Today it's a peaceful village, though their is a holiday caravan park nearby.

  2. Hi Mike. I read your post on Trevethy Quoit. I quite agree with another commentor, Billy, these are the stones of the Nephilim. Beautiful land!
