An old view from Mount Todden Farm with a young Basil Guy picking Princeps and a present day one from the exact same spot which shows how the bank at the top of Pelistry Beach has receded and the wall at the bottom of the field has been rebuilt a lot closer in as the cliff was being eroded destroying the original wall.....Robin Mawer

Work on Friday continuing at Porthcressa to connect the Superfast Broadband cable from the Cable Ship Resolute to the cable that has already been put in from the Telegraph exchange to  Porthcressa. The cable has been laid in a coil under the sand on the beach with enough spare in case of future problems for  reconnection if needed. The last photo shows the four  inner strands which each enclose one fibre optic strand which is less than the thickness of a human hair.
