Dion, Faith and Abigail came to stay with us for a holiday in August 2017, and whilst they were with us it was Faiths birthday. We met up with Faith's twin brother Mark and his partner Helen, the twins mum Sue, and uncle Trev and his partner Alison. We all went to Tavistock and had a lovely family meal. Good times were had by all ♥

 On Sunday the 13th August my son Dion, his fiancee Faith, my granddaughter Abigail, Gary and I walked from Calstock to Cotehele House and back to Calstock.
We stopped off at the boatyard on the way to Cotehele house
for tea and cake (which I might add was the best cake ever!)
We then had a picnic and then walked up to Okel Tor mine.
It was a lot of walking, but well worth it.
If I am not in the pictures, I am the one taking them LOL.

Calstock Viaduct
The Calstock viaduct is part of the Tamar Valley railway that was constructed at the start of the 20th Century and still runs between Gunnislake and Plymouth. The viaduct was built between 1904 and 1907 from 11,148 pre-cast concrete blocks. It is 120 feet high with twelve main arches each 60 feet wide, and one mini-arch at the Calstock end. Originally, a steam-powered lift was attached to it which could raise and lower wagons from the quays over 100 feet below.

Okel Tor Mine was worked from around 1848-1887, producing : Copper, Arsenic, Lead, Pyrite & Tin from shafts. The sett of Okel Tor mine lies in East Cornwall in the Calstock area of the Callington Mining District. Situated about half a mile northeast of Calstock and worked from three main lodes. The lodes named North (Main) Lode; Middle Lode and South Lode worked from Engine Shaft and New Shaft. It is recorded as having a 50-inch pumping engine, a 22-inch combined winding and crushing engine. Okel Tor mine operated between 1849 and 1887 and extracted primarily copper and arsenic. Tin and lead ore (which also contained silver) were also extracted. In 1865, it was recorded as employing 107 people: 80 men, 15 boys and 12 bal maidens. The mine was leased from the Duke of Cornwall, the mineral lord.

Gary and I decided to replace our hedge at the back of our garden with a fence. The hedge and its wildlife are amazing, but it is extremely hard work and time consuming to cut and maintain it, and after all we are not getting any younger. We have a large garden which is 75 foot wide, which doesn't help the matter. Anyway here are a few photographs of the old hedge coming out and the new fence going in.
Due to drainpipes and removal issues, the job had to be done by hand as opposed to using a mini digger. Gary dug the old hedge out by hand, I am so lucky to have such a talented and amazing husband!
For health and safety reasons we hired some Heras Fencing.
Gary got his friend Roy to help him with the erection of the concrete posts and to help with the putting the panels in, which was far too heavy for him to do alone. On the 7th August 2017 the Fence was finished, all that was left to do was some landscape gardening in our garden.
