Happy St.Piran’s Day to one and all

Crossing the Tamar this morning in pure Cornish ‘liquid sunshine’. England bound loaded with cake and cream to share across the border. Wherever you are reading this across the world, have a happy St. Piran’s day, – the patron saint of tin miners and Cornwall’s excuse for having a party.


Happy St. Piran’s one and all

A brief pause in the preps for the fast approaching talk to wish all this blog’s followers a Happy St. Piran’s, wherever you are.

As St. P’s flag is flown all over Cornwall today, so is poking around beneath its surface underway. Perhaps this time mining may return to the home of hard rock mining, perhaps this time a real industry may be re-born. And maybe, just maybe, real hope of work for the next generation.  We should not be just a land for property developers, empty holiday homes and boarded up seasonal cafes.

Not sure how long that flag will last on An Scaff in this wind though!
