My unspoken plea was picked up telepathically and I now know it’s a place called Carn Brea, Cornwall – confirmed by the photo below (Tony Atkin, courtesy Geograph).
Now, can anyone identify the lady in the photo? Or even the cow, an equally elegant lady, in her own cowish way? Clues: (one) written on the back of the photo is: Sent with Pat’s Love; and (two) this little piece of memorabilia was found in Rochester, Kent.
Carn Brea is on a hill less than two miles from Redruth and dates back to a Neolithic settlement (3,700-3,400 b.c.) During the Iron Age, the hillside was mined for minerals. There is also a castle, dating back to medieval times and the Ford Anglia used in the Harry Potter films, which had been stolen, mysteriously turn up there in 2006.
Thanks again, Draliman, your vision is truly laser-like. (Ouch! That’s a private joke, or rather, pun).
