Thursday

A fine clear morning, so we decided to go to Godolphin and walk up Godolphin Hill

Looking over to Tregonning Hill
Not a steep walk
The 100 foot granite finger which is a monument to Lord Francis Basset, Lord de Dunstanville on the top of Carn Brea
Looking towards St Ives - sadly The Island was never in the sun
The water tower at Rosudgeon
The Leeds Shaft Engine House of The Great Work Mine
Looking down to The Mount & Mount's Bay
Great Work Mine and Tregonning Hill

Looking West towards West Penwith
Jim's panorama - with a comical two headed Tilly




The satelite dishes of Goonhilly on The Lizard
 Down we went
The building ahead is a lovely little cafe serving light refreshments
 Renovations to the walls
 Godolphin House - built from the vast fortune made from mining in the area
 Had to look these up - there were several Medlar Trees by the gate
 The gate was open so we went into the courtyard

 Wonderful old gate
 There was an open door leading to these unused rooms
 Amazing floor



 The entrance
 and a glass "peekhole" looking into one of the rooms
Not sure what this was before
 But it's full of old carts now
 We got home just in time to see Trinity House Vessel Patricia lowering the Mopus Buoy into the water
 When we walked the dogs, there she was at anchor


 Nice yacht as we walked home
 The Pampas grasses on the drive are looking good - until the first big Autumn gale
 Next doors are looking even better !
 The setting sun now well left of the Church
Nice end to the day
