Have fun looking around 🙂

Trereen Dinas

An iron age fort in the Cornish coastal cliffs.

Not to be confused with Treryn Dinas, which is near the Minack Theatre in the South. Trereen Dinas is on the North Coast and is miles away from anwhere, but near Guarnards Head, near Zennor, right at the end (or beginning) of Cornwall. Even with the help of an ordnance survey map, we were never entirely sure we actually got there. The only places to stop nearby were private, so I jumped out the car and had a look. There was certainly a path that led the direction of a big protruding rock in the sea, and that was probably it.

So only go and visit if you have time for a walk. There was a pub nearby you could park at, but I’m guessing it’s about a half hour walk from there.

We drove along this coastal road at about 5-6pm in August and I have to say it was absolutely breathtaking. We passed a ruined tin mine that was fantastic to photograph in that sunlight, and I do wonder if it was used in the Poldark series. It was owned by The National Trust, but I’ve just looked through their handbook and I can’t find the name of it unfortunately.

The farmers and landowners in the area keep all the old field boundries – many of the stone walls surviving from the Bronze and Iron ages. There are all kinds of great looking walks to interesting shaped rocks and places to explore. So if you want to go on a walking holiday I would definitely recommend this area along the B3306.

3 days in new york – Day 1. The story of the photographs
February 10, 2017
Oh dear, I had trouble narrowing down the number of photos of New York to include to make it a reasonable length blog post! We did a hell of a lot each day, so I had to include enough to illustrate that, and I managed to get it down to fifteen photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed preparing. By the way, I should explain that this is the first post about the epic holiday our family went on last July. (I’ve had so many blog post ideas that it’s taken me this long to get to it!) I’ve decided that pictures speak a thousand words, so these are mainly going to be photography based travel blog posts, rather than tonnes of information provided. However, if you’d like more information about anything I mention, please just ask in the comments – I’ve got a box full of leaflets and tickets and a detailed diary to refer to.

It’s fun to see the second team of fence builders have started on the opposite side of the Glastonbury Festival site this morning – it amazes me how they manage to make it meet – I suppose they must stop at an entrance gate. Anyway, I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the tall tower in my Instagram Story yesterday, I think is just an electricity pylon that’s always there! It just looked different from a different angle and in the evening sunlight! The scaffolding construction though is definitely new….
Walking round Glastonbury Festival site
A walk around the Glastonbury Festival site – the story of the photographs

Considering Glastonbury Festival is a hop skip and a jump away from us in Pilton, I’m surprised we don’t go for a wander around the site more often. I’m guessing it’s the long uphill walk back to the villagers’ gate that puts us off! Anyway, on Mothering Sunday the rest of the family didn’t really have a choice in the matter, and as it was a bright sunshiny day, I thought I’d drag them off on a walk….
