Dry Dock and Abbey Warehouse, Penzance – coloured Pencil
A large network of smugglers’ tunnels runs beneath Penzance, spanning out from the harbour to the Abbey Warehouse, the Turks Head and Admiral Benbow pubs on Chapel Street, and to Causewayhead and Market Jew Street.
I can just see you sitting, colouring in 🙂 🙂 Have a good weekend!
Yes, Jo’s right. That makes a good mind’s eye picture to go with your actual one.
Do they ever open the tunnels up?
Not that I know of and I am a tunnel avoider anyway 😏
Probably sensible, but be great if they did it for Heritage Open Days even as a video
I would definitely try the tunnels if they were open. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
I have never seen any indication that they are.
Love this and the info about the tunnels. I wouldn’t go down either but Mr S would love it if there were an open day! 🙂
I suppose they end up in a cellar or something. There must be so many of these smugglers tunnels in Cornwall.
What a lovely effect – and a great hint at mystery and intrigue 🙂 I guess it’s no surprise that I would love to check out these old tunnels!
The pencil effect works really well here. 🙂
I thought so. Some do, some don’t but it’s fun experimenting.
I like these photos.
Thanks Carol. I like this one too, they don’t all come out as well, but I am having fun.
Those smugglers’ tunnels still exist? Wow. I used to read about them in Daphne deMaurier’s novels set in Cornwall and Penzance areas.
I am sure there are many tunnels still in existence along the coast.
