Wheal Alice

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

Although going to and from my house means using the same lane (in either direction) it is a case of deciding on which hill to negotiate on the day. Living where I do means that no matter where I go there will be some kind of incline involved, unless I stay quite close! This week we’re going on the Brunnion loop.

Wheal Alice is where we have to climb up the steepest hill so this is not my favourite route. However, this is a great view. And over the hills in the background is the Celtic Sea (St Ives Bay)

    I read this yesterday and then went off trying to find out more, intrigued by the word wheal. I came across a very, very strange Cornwall site that appeared official but went more and more off script. It’s a beautiful picture.

      Wheal simply means mine.
