Howdy stranger.
We don’t get many folks round these ways no more,well ever since they built that fancy resort over yonder,where them there rich city folk do their vacationing.
We get the odd drifter pass through nows and again .... but them don’t stay none to long and never settle.
It just been me and Mary Lou my sister these last 5 winters now ,everybody up gone and left Silver City for other parts.
Mary Lou and me got married last spring,Pa always said “one in the family is worth twos on the outside “
But the babies kept comin out all wrong so Mary Lou put em down the well out back of the old Parsons place.
Well I growed tired of Marys constant yick yackating and she dog gone burnt my eggs way to often, so I put some lead in her this morning and buried her out in the pasture next to Pa
I tell you friend I can still hear that womans yapping in my head
Well the suns low in the sky now and the bottle of Jacks almost gone so am gonna take the old horse and ride out East ,maybe reach the border by sunrise and hide out in the hills of Devon maybe rustle me a few of them there Dartmoor ponies or hold up one of them fancy Stagecoach buses Pa always talked about.
So adios friend.... thanks for stopping by ....

Great report and photos. Sorry to be thick, but is this really Cornwall? I think it is USA, possibly Utah/Nevada. The less desirable members of society would have surely have pinched the very attractive item in shot 1 if it was the UK.
I have been lucky enough to have visited many Ghost Towns in Utah and Nevada. I would say the the level of vandalism is far less than the UK. Also visited Cassiar Asbestos Town, before it became famous. Now dozens of very good drone films easily found by Google on Youtube. Think we should apply stricter penalties to vandals.

Thanks - I didn't think it was a "real" site. Not certain what the device is on shot 1. Reckon it would be worth a few quid if genuine. I would not do it, but can imagine it tarted up, and on sale for several thousand pounds in a "yuppie" antique boutique. Just the thing to show off with, on the new patio!

Edit - just checked on Google. I had never heard of it, as I live in sunny North Wales. It is now derelict, but must be some security as site looks undamaged. Lot more pictures on Daily Mail site

Absolutely amazed that the ?????s have not paid a visit. Wonder how much is genuine. If the stagecoach is real, it seems a great shame to let it rot. Sounds like the site is not secured?
Many thanks for a fascinating posting.

Is this still here?
Looking on the google map it seems alot of new stuff built on and around this site.
I'm in Newquay for my hols in 2 weeks and would mind a trip here if it's still there.
Cheers

I went here couple of weeks ago whilst on my holiday.
I parked in the water sports car park followed the path on the right hand side of the car park until you reach a big metal container, walk down the side of that and follow the path and you can't miss it :)
