Bosigran, Porthmoina Cove water mill (remains) and sea fret coming in

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I should explain: 'fret' is Cornish for mist - specifically sea mist.

Also, thanks to Neil Grimwood's research I can now name the building as the ruin of the Porthmoina Cove water mill which helped drain water from the Carn Galva Tin Mine, shafts all below here and the engine pump house situated 400 yards to the right, up the small valley, by the B3306. (And the adits and shafts following the seams and going well out to sea under the sea-bed).

Thank you Octavio.

These cliffs are famous - some faces and climbs are easy training cliffs for budding rockclimbers, but others are at the cutting edge of hard rock for superhuman types!

Best wishes, Andy.
