On our recent holiday in Cornwall we happened upon the fishing harbour village of Polperro. It was a great location for taking some photographs and having a mooch around. Here are some of the images taken, on what turned out to be a glorious day. There is a map at the bottom of this post with its location, if you fancy giving it a visit.
On a recent visit to Cornwall, we had the pleasure of stopping in the picturesque village of Polruan beside the river Fowey, just a short journey across the river is Fowey which is also featured on this page. Well worth a visit, but just be warned, the roads are very steep and if you struggle with mobility it is not the easiest of terrains to deal with. There’s a map at the bottom if you’d like to check it out.
There is a mixture of SLR photographs and phone camera photographs included on this page.
When we’re not working, we like to spend our leisure time walking and visiting new places. We thought it might be of some value to our website visitors to include our day out photos on the blog to inspire families to get out and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We’ve also included a map of the location of our visit, to make it easier to find.
So hope you enjoy this resource by simply following the places to visit link
Hawkstone Park Follies is described on its website as an historic woodland landscape featuring cliffs, crags, networks of caves, rhododendron jungles, stunning views and a series of extraordinary monuments built as a fantasy Theme Park over 200 years ago. After years of neglect the magical landscape was lovingly restored and reopened in 1993.
Parts of the park and the main walking routes contains several flights of steps, some natural ones carved into rock and some man made wooden ones. Much more than a stroll in the woods, this 2-3 hour adventure will awe anyone who succeeds in exploring its crags and crevices.
This is the second time we’ve visited the park, the first time being 15 years ago, when we were a little bit younger and fitter. But we had a fab day out just the same. A great visit with the family, but some areas might be difficult with young children, particularly if you’re trying to walk the full trail.
We recently had a few hours walking around Rivington, here’s a few photos of our walk. Rivington, if you haven’t been is a great day out. Plenty of walks around the barn, Pigeon tower, and terraced gardens. All photos taken on mobile phone. It doesn’t matter what you take your pictures on, enjoy capturing some memories.
Check out this video from a few years ago, taken on mobile phone of Lever park aka Rivington Terraced Gardens, aka Pigeon Tower. The photos below are of the park as it is today after being cleaned up. A lot of work as gone into the restoration thanks to @rivingtontg www.rivingtonterracedgardens.org.uk
