A Corner of Cornwall in the Depths of Autumn

Kennall Vale Mills in Cornwall is the site of an old gunpowder mill that was shut down in 1914 and has been reclaimed by the woods around it. We visited it in summer with friends and resolved to return in autumn, as anything pretty in green is even prettier in shades of yellow, orange and red!

"Hehe, that tree's all twisty"

I’m reading Robin Hobb’s Dragon Keeper at the moment. The characters in the book are searching for a long forgotten city. I imagined stumbling onto a place like this by chance and not knowing what it used to be or what happened to it. Sometimes I regret the lack of mystery in the world these days.
