Flushing, The Pandora Inn & Mylor Churchtown

A somewhat historical account of a long weekend in Cornwall at the beginning of July

Day One (Thursday)

Thursday evening in Cornwall, after a wet afternoon the skies cleared so where else can you go for dinner than The Pandora Inn at Restronguet. First we visited Flushing for a view across the Carrick Roads to Falmouth.

Sign on a wall – unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the wall!

My kind of doorway…not to everyone’s taste however.

Good to see gigs still being rowed.

A pint of Tribute on the pontoon at The Pandora Inn – Heaven.

A few views from the pontoon, first a steam boat…

,,,,paddle boarding…..

&  a herring gull looking for an easy meal.

Looking back on our favorite Inn in Cornwall and one of our all time favorites anywhere

After a very good fish pie we went to Mylor Quay and Mylor Churchtown on the Mylor Creek – a yachtsman’s paradise

A walk around the headland gave a view in the far distance of the Henry VIII's  coastal fortresses, Pendennis Castle at Falmouth.

St Mylor Church

The present church is of Norman origin c. 1100AD. However the church was founded over 1500 years ago by St Mylor
The cross in the churchyard is the largest in Cornwall (10 ft high). The cross was only identified as such in 1870 as it had been buried head downwards in the earth so that the part above ground could serve as a post. The stone is 17 ft 6 in long.
