Photos #1 (well of this week)

Yes, here are some of the photos that I promised you. Brenda and I picked up Christine on the way and we went to Cotehele, which is just over the Cornish border. The place was self-suffiecient in many ways, with a mill, a lime kiln, noorings for fishing, and a lovely house. from a 21st century point of view, another real part of the story was that the Edgecumbe family built the house in 1458, but after less than 35 years the family moved nearer to Plymouth and built a larger house. So the house is mostly left in "Tudor" times, with very little changes. The mill etc were used through to Victorian times, so there were more changes in them.

So, enjoy -
