Poldark Land

Poldark landscape
 

With the recent end of the first series of Poldark, there is a glum face in our house.  Ross Poldark will not be appearing 'till the next series, much to Lucie's annoyance.  So to cheer her up and to burn off some of the endless energy that our kids seem to have, we headed out to West Penwith to have a nosey around some of the ancient landscapes that Ross might have come across himself....
 

No sightings of him though, or the lovely Demelza for that matter.....
 

If you have not visited Ding Dong Mine, the Men-an-tol, the Nine Maidens, Carn Galver, Lanyon Quoit or just wandered around the landscape in this part of Cornwall, it really is an incredible mix of heritage, wildlife and big views, which on a day like today provides some dramatic skies to capture and a few hours of appetite building stomping.
 

Go take a look for yourself one afternoon....
