    Report - Lavender cottage - Newquay - Sept 2020

    Described as an “exciting development opportunity” in 2013 by camel homes when it came up for sale for a price of £250,000 however while certainly exciting, I don’t think “development opportunity” best describes this place. Personally I’d personally have gone with “derelict” with “age related...

    This was quite a nice find that I found whilst I was looking for some of the costal pillboxes that used to line the coast of Cornwall to fend off enemy ships and planes during the war. I don't have much history to this however they are located in between Praa Sands and Porthleven and that...

    The history Cligga head is a well known mine in Cornwall close to Perranporth. What makes it so special is that it starts (finishes?) on a cliff face so the multiple adits / holes have a great visual impact before you even get inside. The area had been mined for hundreds of years though the main...
