Botallack Mines, Cornwall
The Engine Houses at Crown Mine, part of the Botallack Mine site on the west coast of Cornwall and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Botallack mines are known as submarine mines because they travel half a mine out to sea, beneath the sea bed. It would have been a noisy and dangerous place to be, at it's peak of production of copper and arsenic, but since 1880s it has been silent. Perched on the edge of the cliff it is now a place of quiet reflection.
The Mists on Snaefell Mountain
Sarra on the summit of Snaefell Mountain. Locally the mists are known as the Cloak of Mannan which can envelope the whole of the mountain, sometimes even spilling out onto the island itself. It is said that when the mists clear, one can see 6 Kingdoms - Isle of Mann, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Kingdom of Heaven.
St Govan's Chapel, Pembrokeshire
Watercolour and ink painting of St Govan's Chapel, St Govan's Head, Pembrokeshire. Built onto the side of the limestone cliff circa 13th Century although it may have been erected, in part, as early as the 6th Century. Amazing that it is still standing with the sea lapping at it's feet. Awarded a Certificate of Artistic Excellence by the SAA June2021

The Boat House, Trevarno
The Boathouse on the lake in Trevarno Garden, Cornwall. A very eerie atmosphere around the lake, just the sound of the water lapping against the lakes edge. Even more eerie within the boathouse - almost ghostly. Oil on canvas with distressed pine frame. The dimensions include the frame.
