After leaving Bath, we paused briefly at Wells to revisit the Cathedral.

We then went on to Cleeve Abbey, which is unusual in that the church has been totally demolished, but the gatehouse and domestic buildings survived because they were used as farm buildings. This was also an unusual day for our time in Britain, as the sun was shining.

Our B&B at Mullion: very warm and comfortable.

The next day, the weather had reverted to its usual drizzle. This is St Michael's Mount, near Penzance.

 

The Lizard, the most southerly part of Britain.

 

The Lizard Light.

 

Inside the Lizard Light: the lens that concentrates the beam so it can be seen for miles.

From Mullion, it was time to start back east, to a stop at Cary Fitzpaine.
