Sunny Afternoon : Wheal Coates

 A walk around Wheal Coates on the Cornwall coast near St Agnes. Sometimes people do hang-gliding from here. But this afternoon... which be in fact yesterday afternoon.... there is no-one in the sky. Down on the Chapel Porth beach, with the tide well out, I do see a party of surfers in the narrow band of water that they are allowed today.... and the RNLI lifesaver Landrover.

See how the landscape stretches with little vegetation except heather and gorse. That's the legacy of tin-mining for you. Though here is a bench when you need one ... cos the path up has been steep.
