Day at Morwellham Quay Part three


By cmsue


The beautiful original shop, I just couldn’t believe how time had stood still here.This is the post office and general store, it had lots of old Glass bottles,Tins, Stone Jars etc, as it would have been back then.

This young lady (in tyraditional dress) was todays shop keeper she was very helpful, polite and friendly.

This post box is the original one from the Edwardian days

And so to school,They hold lessons for tourists (as they would have been) twice a day.

I can just about remember the slates, we used Chalk for writing on in junior classes.
(crikey am i that old?)

This old horse has see a few bums in its time i bet

Opposite the school yard was the rope maker, very interesting.
