Lovely pictures pleb but we need some captions.


What are the ruins?
What are those yellow blobs?
Where is the church and the pub?
Which of the big houses is yours?

Where is the church and the pub?
Looks a lot like St. Uny near St. Ives.
I often walk from Lelant to St. Ives and back.
I don't use emojis, irony is better, you decide

Yellow flower is birds foot trefoil. Then theres a broom bush.
Church n pub-and restaurant next door-are at Heath, a conservation village near Wakefield. Pub is called Kings Arms, I've been in before, it still has working gaslights n small pokey rooms.

Church and war memorial and azalea in its grounds are at Kirkthorpe.
Blue flowers are speedwell
None of the grand houses are mine! What a place Heath is
Anybody ID the poisonous plant in the final pic?
