It was back to Levant today, but this time I headed west towards Cape Cornwall to the Botallack Mine.
Set off to Falmouth on the usual route and quickly hit some slow farm traffic. I knew that the major roads were not the most direct route so I hit (for the first time) the “Detour” button on the SatNav.
This immediately diverted me onto some lesser roads and it was not long before it was telling to turn onto roads I would never normally consider.
Started the day at Gunwalloe, on the beach at Church Cove. After a few hours soaking up the rays, moved on to the Penrose Estate where there are walks around the lakes created by the Loe Bar.
It’s been over a two years since my last visit to the Eden Project. The main change, as expected, was the addition of the Core – a worthy contribution to the site.
