This plot on Nursery Street overlooking Lady’s Bridge Weir was up for sale last year. It included the land to the right, wedged between the two buildings, which was occupied by the Hare and Hounds pub until it was demolished shortly after its closure in 2002. The inn would have been celebrating its 200th anniversary this year had it lasted. The pictured building looks to have been used as a factory but I’m struggling to find a construction date or purpose. Directory entries from the early 20th century suggest that this address was used by Charles Ashmore, tobacconist, and the oat cake baker Charles Wilson.

St Mawes, Cornwall
Come #explore Cornwall. It's truly breathtaking wherever you go.
I took this photo near the bottom of Church Steps and stood there for ages waiting for a boy to move out of shot - but he wasn’t budging and we seemed to be in something of a standoff. Turns out he was waiting for me to buzz off so he could film his friends bombing down the steps on their bikes 😱 Looked completely terrifying and dangerous but at least they were outside in the fresh air I suppose! Happy Saturday 🌸🍃🌺🍃🌼
Hope you all have a lovely Saturday.
There's nothing like the sea air to dust of those cobwebs and it's safe to say, after a few days being stuck in the house we've got quite a few!
I am hoping today we manage to get out a bit more and enjoy the last few days of half term before we have to get back to normal for school.
But I've got that feel that one will become better just as the next one catches the dreaded bug.
I do try to stop these two from practicay licking each other but it's almost impossible 🤦🏽♀️ they are glued to the hip and those germs just spread like wild fire 🙈

On a regular day the winds are so strong and it’s so scary to go right to the edge of a cliff ! I always feel like I could get blown off 😑 I can’t imagine what it’s been like during the storms for the last few weeks 😱🌊 and I feel deeply sorry for the people who got affected 🙏🏼 В самый обычный день ветер на скалах настолько сильный , что близко к краю очень страшно подходить ! Так и кажется , что снесет ветром ! Боюсь представить , что было во время штормов за последние несколько недель 🌊😱 очень сочувствую пострадавшим людям , против стихии мы бессильны 😔
Mountains are my happy place. Longing for a dose of mountain therapy. It’s not just the views. It’s the exercise too....... I love this particular hill. Grizedale pike taken form the walk over to Hopegil head. 🙏🏻💙 (spot the person walking up the path to give yourself a sense of scale)

- CADGWITH: MAY - Typical thatched cottages in the Cornish village of Cadgwith.
Located on the Lizard Peninsula and known as ‘Porthkajwydh’ in the Cornish language, which means ‘Cove of the Thicket’, the village features a small fishing harbour. It is scenic picture postcard settlement.
Cadgwith dates back to medieval times as a collection of fish cellars sheltered in a valley and cove. The village became inhabited from the 16th century with fishing the mainstay of the economy.
Pilchard fishing continued in the village until the 1950’s using large Seine boats. Unfortunately due to overfishing pilchards are no longer found in large enough numbers to sustain the industry. Brown Crabs, Spider Crabs, Lobsters and Monkfish are now caught instead and predominantly sold abroad.
Nowadays tourism is the main source of income with many visitors staying in local holiday homes and cottages. Pilot gig racing, regattas and community beach barbecues take place in Summer months and only serve to add a rural community charm to this stunning Cornish coastal settlement.
