The sights you see when you haven't got your camera

We just passed a field where 10 or so pieces of equipment were laid out in two neat rows. If the field didn't seem so remote I would have said it was for a farm sale, there are quite a few of those these days with many getting out of farming unable to afford to continue.

You can see quite a bit of the old Cornwall from a train. By nthat I mean the view of farms and fields that won't have changed in many cases for hundreds of years, well barring the springing up of trees. You can see field shapes that I am certain date back a long way, based on the their shapes. Farms and cottages tucked away that have managed to avoid the modern habit of rusticating or "improving".

Whoops, that was Camborne, time to prepare for getting off at Redruth. More anon.
