At least it affords time to see more new supermarkets, innovative centres in Pool and glimpses of neo-classical architecture in the grand manner. The upper… Continue reading Krowji, Redruth,Kernow – Open Studios December 2014

This is a favourite stopping off place where in the midst of all the travel you might enjoy either quiet or a brief encounter; perhaps both. Perhaps, one of the few actual benefits of privatisation, it is filled with transport posters from the 1930s. You can so easily imagine the billowing steam from the last… Continue reading Branch Line Tea Room, St Erth

It begins by… Continue reading Glass, The Strange History of- by Lyne Stephens Fortune
