Wheal Alice


For my first post there can be nothing better than a Cornish engine house. This is Wheal Alice a defunct mine in the hamlet of Trencrom near St Ives and Carbis Bay.

    I have followed this blog, Jude, and will look forward to seeing all of your Cornish adventures, and reading tales of your new home and environment. Ludlow has lost one of its great promoters.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hopefully a lot more people will visit Ludlow after reading my posts. And I may have found a decent farm shop near here. Off to explore it next week 🙂

    You didn’t mess about, did you? 🙂 🙂 Hugs, Jude! Here’s to many more! Living the dream?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Once I have all the admin stuff sorted I will be. But I did manage to get some macros in the garden the other day 🙂

      1. restlessjo says:

        I hate to be picky, but won’t you just link this blog to the others, like you do with ‘earth’ and 60mm? Save me the trouble of following you because I’m lazy. 🙂 Rain, fog? Tell me about it! 😦

        1. Heyjude says:

          You, picky? Never….
          Yes I’ll put a link on the others now it is up and running. So which one do you actually ‘follow’? I find following easier, but then I don’t follow that many blogs as I like to comment when I visit.

        2. restlessjo says:

          That’s a good question! The travel one, I think, but I normally just follow comments and pop into my Reader when I have ‘spare’ time. Ha! 🙂

        3. Heyjude says:

          I tend to rely on the Reader, but I do pop along to all the blogs I visit occasionally just to see if I have missed anything – which I undoubtedly have over the past couple of weeks.

    Looking forward to your Cornish scenes. Hope you’re settling in.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Still getting the house straight, and all those tedious admin tasks you have to do when you move. But loving the views! Though right now we appear to be in a cloud 😉

  4. I’m going to Cornwall, for the first time, in June! I’ve been to many parts of the UK so I needed to look this county over too! Look forward to reading your blog! Are you living there now or just visiting?

    1. Heyjude says:

      As from the beginning of the month we are living here 🙂

      1. Oh great! I look forward to hearing about it!

    2. Heyjude says:

      You’ll find lots of Cornish posts on Travel Words – https://smallbluegreenwords.wordpress.com/tag/cornwall/

      1. Thanks will check it out, as I started following it!

  5. Sue says:

    Yay! How wonderful to see your new blog, Jude (I’m following!). This engine house is right up my street….but do you think you can get closer to it, or is it on private land, I wonder… Oh, and my extension times arrived, so I took a few practice macros earlier 😀

    1. Heyjude says:

      This one is practically on MY land! Right on the corner of those narrow Cornish lanes 🙂

  6. Very jealous – I’d love to move down there one day. Good luck with the new blog – I look forward to reading and seeing more of ‘God’s Country’.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There seems to be a lot of those – Yorkshire being one 😀

      1. pommepal says:

        Oh yes Yorkshire…

  7. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Here you are, hooray! I’m following – of course, and look forward to learning more about next door in Kernow 🙂

  8. Pit says:

    Enjoy Cornwall!

  9. pommepal says:

    Looks like the green, green grass of home Jude. Looking forward to exploring with you.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I can look at this view all day! But I must get out and start exploring soon.

      1. pommepal says:

        Are you in the country then Jude?

        1. Heyjude says:

          You could say that! But only a couple of miles to the coast and a town. No walking to the market or the butcher though 🙂

        2. pommepal says:

          You’ll have to get a bike!!!

        3. Heyjude says:

          Mmm… thought of that, but we are on an uppy! Never understood why Downs are high up!

        4. pommepal says:

          Hahaha, “uppy” !!! good word. I’ll look forward to seeing more of your “ups”…

  10. I’ve signed up too – of course. Is this a replacement for anything? Or an in addition to? Wheat Alice is a lovely intro, to landscape and to some of the things that might dot it. My first encounter with Cornwall was Burra in SA: Cornish tin miners and similar ruins, although the landscape was more barren by a country mile. Hope the fish was excellent!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s yet another addition! But I will probably still post at the same rate, just scatter them among the blogs! Had smoked mackerel salad overlooking the beach at Porthmeor in St Ives. Lovely! Going to see how long it takes us to walk there once we get a warmer day.

    Welcome home Jude 🙂 I’m following… xxx

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Sherri – hope you like what you see 🙂

      1. Sherri says:

        Always Jude – you know I’m a huge fan of your blogs 🙂

  12. Dina says:

    For me, Alice is now iconic.👍🏻😊💕

    1. Heyjude says:

      She certainly is.

I like a like, but I love a chat
