CWW: Ancient Paths

path-to-chysauster-2-2

Meandering path,

following a

well trodden route.

To whose doorway

do you lead?

This post is for Cee’s Which Way Challenge. This week’s pictures were taken at the Chysauster Ancient Village in Cornwall (England), the remains of an Iron Age settlement thought to have first been occupied nearly 2,000 years ago, during the Roman occupation of Britain. The village contains eight to ten houses, each with an interior courtyard surrounded by a number of rooms built into the walls. Best of all – and why I can use the pictures for this post – you can even see the stoneΒ paths leading up to many of the doorways that the ancient inhabitants would have walked upon.

    • It’s well worth a visit if you like historical sites. Carn Euny is another ancient village that we visited on the same day. That one also has a fogue (underground section) that you can go into, whereas the one at Chysauster has collapsed. I’m glad you liked the pictures, Ali. πŸ™‚

    • I’ve always thought Cornwall to be one of England’s most beautiful counties. It has such a range of landscapes with pretty villages down winding lanes, rugged cliffs and picturesque coves, plus the bleakness of the Bodmin Moor. It’s very different to Lincolnshire where I live! I’m glad you liked the post. Thanks for visiting. πŸ™‚

      • I always found countryside of England together with Scotland absolutely beautiful. picture perfect! I would love to see picture of Lincolnshire as well! I haven’t been to England or UK yet, but it figures quite high on my list!

    • Thank you, Charlie. I’m glad you liked it. I always love to wonder about the people who lived in ancient places like this – there are so many stories held in the stones. πŸ™‚
