  • Thrift (Sea Thrift, Sea Pink) or Armeria maritima can be found growing on most cliffs throughout Cornwall where its low growing habit and tolerance to salt give it an advantage. Unlike many plants Thrift is very also tolerant to metals, particularly copper, in the soil and is one of the first plants to colonise former mining areas. While, as the name implies it is usually pink in colour it can range from almost pure white to a vivid red and even purple.

  • The Brisons from the South West Coast Footpath at Roscommon Head. The Brisons is a small twin-peaked island about a mile offshore from Cape Cornwall. They and are said to resemble General Charles de Gaulle lying on his back In 1851, the ship 'New Commercial' ran aground on the Brisons. Despite rescue attempts all but two of the crew were lost. As a result, the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck (later the RNLI) established a lifeboat in Sennen Cove and one is based their to this day. Look out for the Brisons in the background on Poldark! Please feel free to share/comment/tag or like, this photo and any other photos from my facebook page.

  • Covered Mineshaft, Chapel Porth, Nr St Agnes. Cornwall is littered with old minshafts and the coast around St Agnes in no exception. The abandoned shafts are often home to colonies of bats. This covered shaft is just off the south west coast path on the cliffs at Chapel Porth. This type of conical cage seems to have been been preferred throughout the old Kerrier district council area, making the shaft safe while still allowing the bats to have access.

  • Charlestown Harbour, Nr St Austell. The port was built on the instruction of Charles Rashleigh to plans by John Smeaton (who also planned Smeaton's Pier, St Ives). The port was built to export copper from the nearby mines of Crinnis Hill, South Polmear and United Mines, Holmbush. It later became an important port for the export of China Clay. Today Charlestown is used as the base for a number of sailing ships and its largely unmodernised quays have been the setting for many TV and film productions including 'The Onedin Line', 'Pirates of The Caribbean', 'Dr Who', 'Alice in Wonderland' and of course the current series of 'Poldark'.
