Carn Brea overlooks the historic towns Camborne and Redruth. Because this is a special place to me and Tracy, this is a page dedicated to her, the love of my life.
So, it is where we go when the batteries need recharging, and the soul needs cleaning. We have sat up there many times together in silence watching the world go by. In a strange way this amazing place has had such a strong influence on our lives. Due to this many decisions have been made here in the silence and the wind that has intertwined and shaped our futures. Firstly, on reaching the summit this is the view of the castle.
So, we have walked up Carn Brea many times together hand in hand with the cameras. Often pausing in the sun to take in the amazing views. Totally surrounded by disused mines and bustling streets this is an oasis of peace which is available to all.
The summit is 738 ft above sea level. On top are incredible rock formations, a restaurant and the impressive monument to Francis Bassett, Lord de Dunstaville.

I never went up the Carn on my many trips to Cornwall over the years. However, I will only now go there with Tracy. As I said at the beginning of the page, it is our special place. I hope you have enjoyed these photographs.
