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.
Memory of Mt
Joseph Crapp : ship

His End was All most Sudden
As thou the Mandela came
Expres from heaven
His foot it Slyp And he did fall
Help help he cries & that was all

I remember your beautiful photos of this lovely churchyard last year, including the little wild space for creatures and the notice explaining it was a little wild life sanctuary. Such a wonderful idea…
Beautiful pics… it looks quite summery seeing the little boats bobbing on the water… and just like pictures of Cornwall.. the idyllic dream of Cornish landscapes…

About a half hour drive, that one, through little lanes and ancient woodlands. We are so lucky! 🙂

Those words on the gravestone are so intriguing and tragic, with a touch of, dare I say it, humour. Also, there’s is a propeller there the shape of which I have never seen. Would love to know the engineering behind it. Looks almost claw-like.
