I know it's VERY early (I will be away for a couple of days) and also it's not exactly a fence, but it will have to do! Stone field borders are called hedges in Cornwall.

HFF everyone!!

View from Carn Marth to Carrick Roads (Falmouth Docks just about visible), Cornwall. Yes, there is a fence in there!

My Mother's garden, St Day, Cornwall. I know it's a bit early but I'm not sure if I will be around to post it for Happy Fence Friday tomorrow!

St Aubyn tin mine. Trefula, near Redruth, Cornwall

Penandrea mine chimney, Redruth, Cornwall.

A tin mine slap bang in the middle of town! Now its chimney is a pleasing feature and landmark but this would have been Hell on Earth in about 1840! A mine in operation for copper and tin from the early 18th century and possibly much earlier until it was shut down in 1891.

Roof and chimney from my bedroom window, Saint Day…

Pasiflora. My Mum's garden again! Despite some sour and peevish comments many of us received from an unexpected source (unexpected to me anyway!), let's make this terrific site flourish!! 'Surely it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness!'

HFF everyone!

My mother's garden. Pasiflora and the Primitive Methodist chapel next door (long since disused). The passion flower and fence screen the outside loo (sorry, you euphemism lovers on the other side of the pond, 'rest room'). It's OK, they also have two inside loos but 50 years ago this certainly was the only loo!

The town of Saint Day is on the skyline. My parents live here. This is a tranquil scene. But in the middle decades of the nineteenth century, this would have been hell on earth. It was the mining capital of the world for tin, copper, and arsenic.
