The Luxulyan Valley near St. Austell  is a place of stunning natural beauty despite having an extensive industrial heritage. It is also a quiet place for an autumn walk.

 A clapper bridge over the rather turbulent river running through the valley. Dippers  breed near here.

Two Fungi found in the hedgerow. I wish I knew more about them. 
Detail on bark

The main shaft with driving gear of a 34ft water wheel which initially pulled wagons up and down the Carmears incline which leads to Ponts Mill.  In later years it powered  china stone grinders situated on either side of the shaft..
