More photos of my workplace (Pic heavy)

I have posted before about my terrible workplace My workplace; damp, untidy, dated buildings and have - at great risk to myself - taken some more in the past week.

I hope you enjoy and, again, apologies for the quality.

Some poor soul has to live in this shanty with straw for a roof

Cottage near St Mawgan


And then someone else has to endure the claustrophobic approach to this house

again near St Mawgan


But as these 2 shots indicate there is no escape for the agoraphobic

At Trugo Farm near Newquay


Bodmin Moor in contrasting light


Some might find these scenes of rural decay at Boscastle worrying

Boscastle Valley


Tumbledown kitchens at the Old Manor


New bridge and Harbour Lights chapel (now a tea room)


In the same village the harbour lies quiet

Boscastle Harbour


Perhaps because the harbour entrance is a little difficult to navigate

Boscastle Harbour entrance


In case anyone is in doubt, the original conceit of this thread is sarcastic. I love my workplace and am lucky enough to have a job that takes me round some of the most beautiful parts.

8. Trouble is that in the past the wealthy did not see the beauty

They saw only the money to be made from the minerals and fishing.

The land is still scarred by tin/lead/arsenic mines and quarries; the St Austell area is still a moonscape of active and defunct china clay pits and waste dumps. The engine houses that are such a prominent feature of my county were powered by the dirtiest brown coal and, literally, cast a pall over the whole landscape; the wonderful lichens and mosses that once again grow in the clean air blown from the Atlantic were nearly wiped out. Picturesque "2 up 2 down" cottages and tenements, now perfect for small families, were once for 2 or 4 families of miners or fishermen.

I love Cornwall and am hugely lucky to be living whilst it heals from the injuries mankind did to it.
