Golitha falls



Jamaica Inn
Green with moss, the old trees, mostly oak I think, trips you up over old roots as you follow the track to the falls.  You can follow the River Fowey along the road to Bolventor village which is very near Jamaica Inn, not a place I like, too over commercialised.  It is one of the roads that take you to the A30, the road in and out of Cornwall, a good place to live within 10 miles off, should the need arise to get out of Cornwall quick!









Golitha Falls video first video taken by my own fair hand, which accounts for the stop in the middle.  One thing we notice, is that Cornwall is really just starting to green up, especially the trees. But the most beautiful sight of all was the tapestry of primroses that threaded the steep 'stone' hedges in all the lanes, violets added a haze of blue in places, never have I seen so many primroses tumbling down the banks - a glorious sight.

  1. I love the idea of needing to get out of Cornwall quick! Beautiful mossy trees - it looks about two inches thick on that last one.

    1. It is the only road out for 'grockles' ;), but seriously from all the info we got about moving into Cornwall is stay near the A30 for when you want to go visiting, also Bodmin Moor (990 feet up) has 9 months of winter. Expect Dartmoor is the same...

  2. I loved your video, but made the mistake of turning the sound up - it nearly deafened me!

    I knew that was Jamaica Inn, even from the little photo in my blog listings. I see there is a new series beginning on Easter Monday.

  3. When I read Jamaica Inn I can imagine it as bleak and brooding and without any modern invasion of tourists.
    have just enjoyed several of your other recent posts as a reward for struggling with my new PC for what may well have been hours. Indeed, where do familiar programs and such get 'decanted' in the new set-up [?]

  4. Hi MM, New computers are not easy, dread when this one goes but where would be without them? Technology moves on a pace, but I hope you get to grips with yours.
    When we stopped at Jamaica Inn I stopped in the car, and watched a man walking in the distance down from the moors - it is indeed bleak....
