Kernow

South West England, a county called Penwith bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
Historic tin mining area, remnants remain on the landscape.

The Crowns, Botallack, engine houses on the cliff edge.


Geevor, where mining 'heritage' money ploughed in £millions to make a museum for tourists in area of high unemployment. (instead of jobs)





The beach at Porth Nanven, yet another area taken over by the rele
ntless purchasing power of the National Trust.

Great pics, is it a pit head? That reminds me of a photo I did on my father's book cover. He wrote his memoirs a couple of years ago. Except the one on the book cover was from South Yorkshire.
