Cot Valley

Another of my ambitions realised today - unbeknownst to me.


View On Black


I'd set 2 targets for today's exploits - Ding Dong Mine was despatched and in the bag before lunch. I'd then been researching a valley near St Just that had a few mining remnants near the sea.


We found the location and then I realised it was on of the places I'd been longing to find for years - Cot Valley - Porth Nanven - the location of "Bubblegum Rock"! I didn't even realise it was here! So we spent a good while down there enjoying the ambience, photographing the scene and most importantly of all, sheltering form the nasty cold wind...
