Many thanks for the map.  I have fond memories of a holiday in Perranporth as a child (mid 1960s) when we stayed just a short walk from what had been Perranporth Beach Halt.  Closed by then, but a fascinating concrete structure amidst the weeds accessed through a kissing gate if my memory serves.  Wonderful area.

Hello Mr.Martin and Mr. Brian,

Thank you. I've got the printed map now  :claphappy: although there looks like a big shadowy man at the bottom of the page about to destroy Plymouth  :worried:.

Heigh ho, he's a Bristol City fan, I'm a Pompey fan and we've all been at it for years! No worries  :).

Cheers guys, will put in my new 'Cornwall Layouts Memory Bank' folder with the other maps and list of PO liveries etc.

Cheers weave  :beers:

There are going to be headaches aplenty throughout the country judging by the amount of Samís Cider on the move.....
A black Dean Goods takes the station avoiding line at Port Perran heading westwards towards Blackwater Junction and on to Penzance. Maybe a good night will be had in the Admiral Benbow later!

The CLPG workshops in the background have been busy painting the wagon in the red livery of Port Perran Timber merchants.  The CLPG stores van looks resplendent in its Prussian Blue livery.

With kind regards

Aha. Got you. Admittedly it looks like the tardis but is actually a lineside hut Iím afraid.
And yes, the CLPG workshop is indeed a former goods shed.

Extra shifts are being worked to keep up with demand. Internal discussions are being held as whether to inquire about importing French cider apples next year. Cider demand is on the increase and Sam's Cider would like to aument its range of ciders. Early days yet.

David Penworthy of Redbow Farm near Trepol Bay has the largest acreage of  Colloggett Pippin apples in West Cornwall. Normally grown in the Tamar Valley, David has discovered that the trees do well in the rich soils on his farm. The pippins are well known for their sweetness and suitability for cider.
It is rumoured thar David is in discussion with the head brewer at Samís Cider with a view to supplying apples which could be transported out of Cornwall in specially cleaned cattle wagons.

Bulmer's of Hereford used specially cleaned coal hopper wagons to transport cider apples, every autumn. I think specially cleaned mineral wagons would do the job.

Head cidermaker?

I think we'll call the head cidermaker Fred Haggett.
From a list of Somerset names.

I'm sure the 'Compagnie Internationale des Well-Lashed' can accommodate some sort of export arrangement  :D. (That's if you meant me).

 We do like our cooperatives over here and are always willing to help although we're keeping an eye on our Cornish friends who sound like they might be muscling in on any potential future business transactions  :hmmm:.

Found this from Bulmers (1957)...
