The Rope Walk
Not only are some of the street names in St Ives a little different, many of them are very narrow, or simply passages leading from one lane to another; as you can see a lot of them are steep cobbled hills or flights of steps.
Nice to see all the traditional names. (And translations into Cornish)
Not sure that I would want to retire to the town though, with all those steep streets and cobbles to face. Cornish pensioners are obviously fitter than some.
Regards as always, Pete. x
Ha, I’m not sure many Cornish people actually live in the town itself Pete. Maybe on the outskirts where it is a little flatter.
Sensible folk indeed! x
What a delightful place for a wander!
It is when it is off-season. I wouldn’t attempt it at the moment. I’d never get a photo of the streets!
What an interesting post, both for the pictures and the unusual street names!
Well I haven’t got photos of ALL the streets so thought that instead of just writing a list I’d try something a bit different.
Another great post, and great idea. Clodgy View is my pick, even if it dos seem to mean muddy and wet!
Sounds about right 😉
There are some great names there! I remember starting to do a similar thing and gather the names of the streets when we were in Fowey, but didn’t get very far before I was distracted by all the different door knockers (which I took pictures of but have yet to put them in a post!).
Haha.. I took loads of door knockers in Malta and still haven’t done anything with them! (2006)
Clodgy View and Carrock Dhu, awesome 🙂
I thought this would make you smile 🙂
Looks like a great place but its cheaper for me to fly to Europe than a train from London!! 😠
A darn sight quicker too!
Wonderful street names, Jude. I assume there are no pubs in Teetotal Street. 🙂
heehee.. I never looked! You would imagine not.
This post was really different! Nicely done.
The hills and cobblestones don’t necessarily frighten me off, but I don’t think I’d like to live on TeeTotal Street. These are not my people 😉
Nor mine. We’d have to forego that G&T 🙂
I don’t think so …. some things are just too important 😉
Ah, Teetotal Street is in this time! And I’d forgotten about Virgin Street.
It’s a very quaint place 🙂
