Beautiful place

=Minack Theatre is an open air theatre in Porthcurno in Cornwall England. Constructed above a gully with a rocky granite outcrop, jutting into the sea.it is at Porthcurno just 4 miles from Lands End. The Daily Telegraph newspaper says Minack Theatre is the worlds most spectacular theatre setting. Invented by Rowena Cade , who built it at the end of her garden,,in the cliff. There is a Visitor Centre. The season is May to September, of plays, musicals and operettas. Minack Theatre is run by a charitable trust. The afternoon that i arrived, a performance was under way ,so admission was only to look down into the arena. Still great.=..==MINACK THEATRE.  Cliff where the under water cable came ashore.

This beautiful place is accessable by car or bus. The bus is the route from Lands End to Mousehole. in Cornwall England. I arrived in Porthcurno by bus from Lands End. It is a small village, that used to be a world Telecommunication centre, something to do with cables under the sea to U.S.A. There is a Telegraph Museum. Nice cafe and Pub in the village. It is a short walk to Minack Open Air Theatre.------------
