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.

  1. 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. 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 🙂


      1. 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. 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. 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.

  2. 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?


  3. 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 😀


  4. 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. 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.
