Boobys Bay is a nice sandy beach on the north Cornwall coast and there is good walking on the coast path to Dinas Head and Trevose Head. Early May is an ideal time for a visit with the coast alive with summer flowers.
Redruth is a large Cornish town with an industrial past of which there are reminders in the town centre including the tin miner statue and Murdock’s House, home of inventor William Murdock who made the first locomotive in 1784. A few miles west of Redruth, is the mining heritage centre of Heartlands. Centred around a restored engine house, there is parkland, gardens and a visitor centre. Photos are from a fine Sunday morning in April.
