Happy Sunday! This week’s My Sunday Photo is of Truro cathedral which is in the town I live in. I took this photo yesterday when the weather wasn’t the best. As you can see from the steeple there is mist partially covering it.
On Thursday we had a visit at the cathedral from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. People were queuing from 7am to meet them. I would have loved to popped down, but I thought it would have been too busy with a 7 month old.
This week I have chosen Cornwall as my Word of the Week. The reason I have chosen Cornwall is because it’s one of the most beautiful places in the country to live. I know I’m biased but I just cannot help it. I love to appreciate the natural beauty surrounding me everyday. So looking back through my blog pictures over the past year I have presented you with some of the best.
Today is a lovely hot sunny day which actually made me think of writing up this post for you. These photos were all took within a few miles of where I live. I feel lucky to be on maternity leave this Summer to enjoy Cornwall at it’s best.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Have you ever been to Cornwall? What was your favourite place to visit?
This beautiful engine house and chimney stack is at the back of the car park at my local supermarket. I have walked past it hundreds of times but never really stopped and looked at the beauty and history behind it.
The site of this engine house is called Taylor’s Shaft and was started in 1922, after flooding ocurred in nearby winding shafts. The 110ft tall chimney stack next to it was actually built for the engine’s boilers before the engine house was built itself. The letters EPAL built into the stack with white bricks stand for East Pool and Agar Limited.
The East Pool mine was first used to collect copper and later on tin from the early 18th century until 1945.
At the Taylor’s shaft site there is a National Trust discovery centre called Cornish Mines and Engines -it is currently closed due to still being in the Winter season. It will reopen on 22nd March 2016.
