A Rugged Coastline…..


The Rugged North Cornish Coast

Late autumn on the Cornish Coast was always a magical place to be, especially when it was between weather fronts.  Dramatic seas, then something a little calmer, fantastic cloud scapes, and low light adding dimension to the rugged rocky coast.

Here at Levant, looking towards Pendeen Point, you are reminded that once this was a busy industrial mining area .  Levant and its neighbouring mines produced Tin and Arsenic.  Mines stretch out under the sea with Steam Driven Beam Engines used to keep the workings clear of water.  Mining was always a dangerous occupation….. but the mining and refining of Arsenic was equally as dangerous for those on the surface, and not just the workers but the wider community.

A peaceful view, a peaceful reminder of  past toil and hardships.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
