The Dovecote - Cotehele House, Near St Dominic, Saltash, S.E. Cornwall

Cotehele House holds a very special memory for me because when I was 9 or 10 I had been given my first camera and took it for the first time on a school trip to this location. It was an old Kodak Brownie camera which used 120 film and I can still remember the excitement of collecting the enprints from Boots and viewing my efforts. Of course they were all rubbish, but there was one picture I remember taking from inside this dovecote which I thought was the best of the bunch. Those pictures, needless to say have now all disappeared. Today the dovecote is sealed off and I was unable to repeat my childhood effort, but nevertheless this picture will suffice to remind me of that day

Have a great weekend
