Cornish Images and the Galleries that follow it, are dedicated to other places I have been in Cornwall with the cameras. Apart from Mining there are many other photogenic places to see.
The first images on this page are of St Peter’s Church near Chiverton Cross. The church was built during 1861 by William White, the original tower was removed in 1898.
The current tower was built in 1928. So, the church finally closed in 2008 when building works in the region of £800,000 were required. The last service was on Christmas Eve 2006. It’s a shame this was a lovely building and deserves better, the images here were taken during 2011.
The Cornish Coastline is spectacular, impressive cliffs and hidden coves certainly makes good photographic material. Furthermore, look a mine on the cliffs. Wheal Coates probably the most photographed mine in Cornwall.
Porthlevan is the most Southerly Port in mainland Britain, the harbour is well protected form the storms that batter this small town on a regular basis. Tracy and I had a wander around there a couple of years ago, and shared a scrummy pasty.
Overlooking Redruth is Carn Brea. This is Carn Brea “Castle”, originally it was built as a chapel dedicated to St. Michael, which was then incorporated into the Basset hunting lodge and given its castellated appearance.
Lately restored and extended by local builder Percy Williams to serve as a restaurant. Information kindly supplied by Carn Brea Protection Group.
The rest of the images on this page were taken when Tracy and I walked from St Just to Geevor Mine in 2017. It was certainly an amazing day, and the company was better. Because of the length of the walk, we were both knackered.
