Easter Weekend in Cornwall Part 4 - A Walk in Lydford Gorge



Lydford Gorge, Devon, described thus on the National Trust website: "strenuous walking, rugged terrain, vertical drops. Unsuitable for visitors with heart complaints or walking difficulties".  Luckily none of us fitted this description!

All photos taken with LX3 using 1:1 format, a combination of colour and black and white (no pinhole camera today), and all straight out of camera, no PP.


Mark and his Mum Linda

were dotted throughout the gorge

We want to know what this green plant is -
will ask my Mum, but does anyone else know?

Stick Figure in Peril!



Tree trunk impaled with coins - lots and LOTS of coins




Linda consults the map while Mark has a sit
on the coin tree

Mark doing his whole Questing Explorer Thing





I could've used the one where Mark's pulling a sensible face,
but I decided to include this one instead :))

Mother and Son









The Devil's Cauldron













Hmmm ....









Slightly disturbing timber faces in the gorge




Spring reflections





Backlit moss-covered trees, of which there were many
