Ludon Valley, Crackington Haven

I have posted some pictures from East Woods before and it turns out, although I got that name from the signpost pointing the way to it, that I should be calling it Ludon Valley. Now people from the Crackington area won’t be scratching their heads wondering where the heck the place I said I walked is. In fairness it is on the current OS maps as East Woods as well but I’ll be going with the locals (and older OS maps of the area) in future.

Penkenna suffers from this local versus OS naming inconsistency too, appearing as Pencannow Point on the map. I can see there were probably some locals winding up the men from the Survey or they just found it hard to penetrate the locals accent in this case.

I will be walking in this natural and native woodland often now. As the spring continues to bring the bluebells and buds out, the beginning of the season also brings a beach ban for dogs, so Gwynnik and I will be exploring the other non-beach walking and photographing routes.

    1. Gerroff my land! πŸ˜‰

      Nah, seriously, lovely little spot but you must bring wellies as it’s a steep valley that drains across the pathways into the stream = boggy!


        1. You must find it quite lonely up there when everyone from the Midlands comes down here for the summer… πŸ˜‰


    1. Thank you.
      Sorry, no Instagram but only just, deleted my account yesterday! Everything was mobile biased which I really don’t do that much. You could post normal shots but it was more trouble than it was worth… also, in Facebook family and I’ll not be on that come the end of this week either. Twitter and G+, Flickr account too.
      Nothing to stop you sharing my pics on it though! πŸ™‚


    1. If not walking Gwynnik I will often sit a while and just be peaceful (if she’s with me we can’t stop still, she doesn’t like that at all…)


    1. If I understood what a ‘tag’ was it might have been a nice offer and I’d be thanking you but I honestly don’t know! (I’ll ask my teenagers…) πŸ˜‰


  1. Wow, this is my favorite photo of all I’ve seen so far. Probably because, as a forest dweller, it immediately feels like home. I love how the trees seem to be leaning toward, or dancing with, the water. I’m also amazed at how much detail pops out in your black-and-white medium. Though I’m surprised there’s no dog splashing through…

    1. There were two dogs!
      Luckily my daughter was there with hers as well so she kept them both busy although there was a lens licking incident after I had finished… πŸ˜‰
      Glad you like it.

  2. I can’t get the link to look at the prints available, to work. (Where it says ‘Prints available here…click here to be whisked off…) Could be my old computer or my computer illiteracy, but thought I’d mention it in case there’s a bigger issue you might want to be aware of.


    1. Thank you Lisa.
      I checked and it was broken/not there/messed up by an idiot.
      Should be fine now, works this end so you (and everyone else) can go and have a look. πŸ™‚
