A series of images taken last August at Par Dock. A number of us were very fortunate to have a guided tour of the area for a couple of hours. The Dock played a pivotal role in the export of China Clay from Cornwall, but a decline in the industry and changes in the way clay  is now transported, means part of the dock is now undergoing development into a marina. The guided tour is something that isn’t done normally, so thanks to the guys at Imerys for arranging this for us.

I actually intended to use the  Bronica SQ for this trundle, but being rushed at the last minute, I failed to check the state of the batteries , which were flat.  Even worse – I had no spares. I had to resort to the Pentax 6×7, which in the end worked out well, but I would have liked to have kept the square format so this series matched my other China Clay images from old abandoned clay workings.
