On the Cliff-top – SquareTops 28

Here’s an oldie, scanned in from a slide from the mid 1980s…. To

Wheal Coates, near St Agnes, mid 80s

Linked to April Squares at Becky’s here


  1. Oh, I love the 1980s quality of the colour. They can go either way, can’t they? Lots of mine are orange.

  2. Lovely angle down to the beach. Is this Jude’s friend? 🙂 🙂

  3. Wonderful square Sue, did you remember you had it or have you been disappearing into your archives?

  4. Love this – so wish I could be there now! Grear shot from the archives.

  5. I like to see old slides like this. No doubt Jude has some shots of this mine since she moved to Cornwall.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. I like the colour wash Sue. Interesting building situation.

  7. Great composition, geometrically pleasing. I think the faded color adds to the image.

  8. Looks like Wheal Cotes. I’ve stood in the same place to take a photo. 🙂

  9. Funny, I was trying to figure out how they maneuvered down that cliff to build before I realized that they built it from the ground up! Shows you the vertigo I had looking down in that photo.

  10. Oh, that is taking us back in time, Sue. Back to our youth! Lovely square image

  11. No, I haven’t 😦 I just meant taking me back to the 1980s 🙂 🙂

  12. And I still have not managed to get there at such a low tide that I can walk out that far onto the sand to take a photo from the beach. This must have been an exceptionally low tide.

  13. Visited a few of these on our one trip to Cornwall, but not this one. Such an important piece of industrial heritage.

    Ah to be there now Sue 🙂
    Lovely, I don’t suppose it has changed too much Lol
