TALL SHIPS AT CHARLESTOWN

Tall ships in Charlestown, Cornwall harbour


A tall ship at Charlestown earlier this year. This is where some of the scenes for the Poldark television series were filmed.

I remember visiting Charlestown very early on the first day of the new millennium. It was quite misty, or perhaps foggy. As we looked back at the village from a far harbour wall it was more like we had stepped back in time as opposed to seeing a new millennium.

You might find CHARLESTOWN: BUILT TO EXPORT COPPER ORE of interest.

    1. Thanks Ann - just playing about with the blog at the moment - but hopefully may turn into my replacement for G+. I haven't found an alternative that appeals to me, so far. Happy Christmas!

    1. It's quite easy to start a blog on Blogger, if you have a subject you are interested in. As for how to get known - perhaps start by not being 'Unknown' become known! Promote on such things as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and so on.

  8. Hi Mike That's a great idea you always put together such thoughtful posts about Cornwall. A lady in our village "around Perranuthnoe blogspot" combines hers with a facebook page for a little more reach
