|The trip down to cornwall was really as much to see where a great, great, great, (great?) grandfather have lived and died as much to see the countryside. In the end, I don't think Britain is really diverse in landscape but the real diversity comes from so much wide and varying histories crammed in so little a space.
And so I came to the little town of Cadgwith for a bit of my own history. Here a grandfather lived as a poor seaman. And in the photos is the local little pub in the town that he probably drank at. I stayed the night there and the locals are definite characters but very charming.
Also on the way to Cadgwith, I stopped at one of the bigger towns called Helston. Here this ancestor lived and worked in appalling conditions in the local Workhouse for paupers and for his efforts, received a paupers grave when he died. Such wonderful times back them, huh....
