  • Hello! This is a last call for participants in a study that I am running on behalf of the National Trust. It is about how walking makes people feel, including how they sleep. I am looking for people who will be walking by the sea this coming weekend, or over the next week. The study involves answering some brief questions via an online survey before and after your walk. Participants will receive a free pass to a National Trust property in return for their time and help. If you would like to take part, please register your details here: Please feel free to contact me with any queries. Thank you! more

  • Wheal Owles, Botallack Perched on the cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean about 8 miles south west of St Ives, Wheal Owles extends down to more than 200 fathoms (1200ft or 400m). The South West Coast Path passes between Wheal Owles and Wheal Edward (which can be seen behind). On 10th January 1893, Wheal Owles was the site of a mining disaster. Miners accidently broke through into the flooded workings of neighbouring Wheal Drea. As the torrent rushed into Wheal Owles it pushed the air before it, creating a great wind which blew out all the candles and plunging the terrified miners into absolute darkness. Those working on the upper levels narrowly escaped with their lives. Nineteen men and a boy were never seen again. The mine never re-opened and the remains of the miners lost are still entombed in the flooded workings. There is a memorial to the men who died on a plaque nearby. If Wheal Owles looks a little familiar that is because, with the aid of some carpentry and CGI, it was transformed into Wheal Leisure for the recent Poldark TV Series. Please feel free to share/comment/tag or like, this photo and any other photos/videos from my facebook page. All I ask is that you credit and, if you feel inclined, like my page in return. more
