    From the album: Aerial images

    A good place for a bit of drone action as there are no close neighbours and it is somewhat elevated on a low hill. The main ruin is the gatehouse, only a cellar-like undercroft remains inside. The gatehouse was partly rebuilt at some point and was used as a farmhouse and barn. The site is privately owned and not kept secure so there has been some minor vandalism e.g. graffiti which is sad - however a greater long term danger is water penetration and movement in the foundation causing serious cracks in the masonry. To the rear it looks like a wall has been used as target practice but a long time ago - it could have been musket balls.

    A rare survival of a building designed by the great engineer, the pumping house was to have provided the power for Brunel's South Devon Atmospheric Railway. Trains drawn along by a piston in a tube laid between the rails.Air was evacuated from the tube by a system of pumping stations along the route from Exeter to Plymouth. There were to have been eight pumping stations in all. The Totnes pumping station was never fitted out with a steam engine, though boilers were installed. The line functioned atmospherically between Exeter and Newton Abbott between 1846-48. However, serious problems befell the project due to air leaks, water getting into the pipes and faults with equipment. It was abandoned and replaced by locomotive power and the South Devon Railway became part of the Great Western Railway in 1878. The building became part of a milk processing factory in 1934, a use that continued until 2007.

    Mountain biking above Aviemore - great run down from here, but seriously hard work on the way up - especially on a downhill mountain bike!

    Situated at the confluence of the Tresillian and Truro Rivers. During the heyday of mining it was quite an important little port
