Silbury Hill / Image by Meic

It was a great trip. I would love to spend more time around Avebury and that part of Wiltshire in general. I always seem to be passing through. Funny how our paths crossed in Cornwall without even knowing it. Meic Posted by Meic

Duloe / Fieldnotes by tjj

Train to Liskeard (we were staying in St Ives), then bus to Duloe (hourly service from Liskeard to Looe and Polperro, run by Plymouth City Bus - timetable here: https://www.plymouthbus.co.uk/timetables/7373a74-3rd-september-2017#timetable)

The same service (with a change of number at Liskeard) runs north from Liskeard to Callington and stops off at St Cleer.

We had originally intended to combine Duloe with a trip to Trethevy, but ended up staying longer at Duloe than I expected, so decided to abandon Trethevy and got the bus to Looe, then on to Polperro as we'd never been to either place before (we got a "family" day ticket that allowed us to use multiple buses).

A really beautiful photo S, as always. I know I should comment more often on the wonderful photos that find their way onto TMA. Scorhill is now on the 'visit soon' list. tjj Posted by tjj

Thanks all for the kind comments. Sometimes it's as much the circumstances as well as the site! A R Cane Posted by A R Cane

Thanks Costa. Know what you mean. The roads around there are extremely narrow, very twisty and quite busy. I would say the walk from Fernworthy would be more rewarding as you'd be able to park better there and then have a more relaxed journey to Scorhill (providing the weather's good obviously!).

Love the photos, been wanting to visit this site for a while now, had problems passing cars with my van last time and ended up abandoning my visit after one too many blind reversing sessions, will look at either taking the car or walking up from Fernworthy. Posted by costaexpress

Thanks so much for sharing this. I don't know what I like more, the wonderful light on the stones or that mighty cloudscape behind. Very special. thelonious Posted by thelonious

I think it might be "test" (i.e. test the mill).

Stonehenge and its Environs / News by moss

My brother works for Natural England and has worked on a long-term project to progressively improve the accessibility of England's coastal path. On many occasions, the team has met with landowners and their lawyers to try to overcome gross obstinacy and pig-headedness. The guidelines they work to try to NOT accept permissive paths because the vision is an unconditional right to walk the coastline. Posted by tomatoman
