The walk around Phoenix United with the Pensilva History Society was a great day. A day blessed with excellent weather and excellent company. Despite the cotoneaster and bracken we found plenty of William West’s mine to explore. The had grown in my absence to becoming part of Mark Camp’s excellent South East Cornwall Walking festival- it was a bonus to be able to play our part in the week’s activities.
I have listed all my the Phoenix United blog posts on a new page on this site, click here to view. The new page should provide a useful index for any one researching the mine.
Now that the walk is over this blog will switch its focus to subject the next outings for my books. After perhaps a quick diversion into some random facts gathered in the background whilst Phoenix demanded its attention.
One parting thought on Phoenix. My final image of the site was visitors lined up at the Minion’s Village sign to grab ‘selfies’. Conclusion-Fictional Yellow gibbering beings now trump Heritage and landscape. Move aside Poldark!
