Botallack - The Crowns

Botallack -  The Crowns
This shot was taken from roughly where Poldark ( Aidan Turner ) and Uncle Charles ( Warren Clarke ) both on horseback had a conversation in the latest series.
This is not my only shot of The Crowns and there is more detail attached to my earlier shot. The workings of the mine stretch out under the sea bed into the atlantic and in the upper levels in times of stormy weather the miners would hear above their heads the rocks rolling around on the sea bed.
Mindful of the novel of 1868 by R M Ballantyne about Cornish Mining titled " Deep Down" I have added a soundtrack by Status Quo - Down Down Deeper and Down.
