Tamar side valley to St Mellion
Tamar side valley to St Mellion
View westwards from the river up the small side stream towards St Mellion. Typical of sunken estuaries, this very small stream has a relatively large valley, which is tidal for a mile from here. Strawberry Hill to the right and Hornifast Wood to the left. Ahead is some prime steep south-facing Tamar valley market gardening land - here still active in 1971, but today mostly reverted to scrub and farmland. This rural setting was not so tranquil in the war...
