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).

Interesting - Like! I love the way your gallery careens between Spain and Cornwall!

Andy Rodker on November 6, 2012

Nice word 'careens'! First time I've seen it on Pano. You mean you are confused by the way my gallery wobbles unsteadily from one location to another without any semblance of planning or forethought!


Thanks for the like, Diane!

Yours, only joshing above, Andy
