Sorry - not dynamite holes. The holes in the rock face are from when the mining companies tested out their hard rock drill bits.

I like the explanation of Fourlanespete about the origin of these intriguing small holes. Best wishes, Carlos.

Hello Fourlanespete. Thank you. Yes I read this some time after I uploaded the photo but forgot to change the title. I will now do so! I respect your local knowledge, coming from Four Lanes!! (I lived in St Day for a while and it is still my official address in Cornwall - I teach English in Madrid most of the time these days!). I will simply use your expanation for the revised title. I hope you don't mind!

Best wishes and also best wishes to you Carlos.

Andy
