Walk Around Mylor – Graveyard, Boatyard and Harbour

Such a beautiful bright but bitterly cold day – perfect for a walk around Mylor. I love the Graveyard and the water and the lovely Mr S takes great delight in wandering around the boatyard.  The propellers on the boats caught my eye – I had never realised how many kinds there are!  Do read Joseph Crapp’s gravestone carefully! There is a marina here with some very expensive yachts (many of which are up in the boatyard for the winter) and also many working boats.

Click on any photograph for an enlargement. You may need to for the wording on the gravestone.  If you’d like to see more of the fascinating old gravestones in Mylor Churchyard, have a look at this post from last year.

His End was All most Sudden

His foot it Slyp And he did fall

Help help he cries & that was all
