No doubt I have missed a few, but we only spent one day in this fascinating Cornish town. I will build a Datastore page with all the "general" photographs there. Walked to Gulval and found interesting artifacts and milestones both there and on the way back.
|Walk up the promenade until you reach the bridge over the railway line. When you cross the bridge and meet the main road near a garage you will find this milestone. This milestone shows Hayle 7 miles, Cambourne 13 miles, Redruth and Truro. This milepost has clearly, like many, has had a knock|
|This is the reverse side. 1 mile to Penzance and Lands End is 11 miles! |
Not a lot after that!
|This milestone is a little mysterious. It is almost facing Hannah Bennetts Water Fountain. |
This means that it is clearly inside Penzance proper. Not sure what the 16 is, if in fact it is 16. Suspect it may be some sort of boundary post. It is in quite an exposed position across the road from the fountain.
