Kerdroya

On a walk I spotted this by the coastal path. At first I thought it to be one of those wall retainer gizzmos to stop the wall from buckling. But clearly it is marked by a rather unique pattern. Turns out to be a labyrinth, which is a symbol used by a community biassed group for the creation and maintenance of Cornish hedges – referred to by the name of Kerdroya.

The Minack Theatre

The Minack Theatre is perched above the sea near Porthcurno, Cornwall. The theatre was created from the inspiration of Rowena Cade. For a small fee it’s possible to visit the theatre when there is no performance. As it happened, we were lucky as the production crew/actors where running through some rehearsals. (Though, judging from the language, it wouldn’t have been a performance you would want to take you spinster Aunt or mother to.)
