My work takes me past the old Blackpool Dries site at Burngullow which is where the new replacement bridge for Trewoon is being assembled before being moved down the road to be lifted into position. I managed to get the attached photo on my phone this afternoon and thought your members may like to see it.
All the best, Phil.

A consultation is open seeking views here: https://www.plymouth.gov.uk/parkingandtravel/transportplansandprojects/currenttransportprojects/majorroadnetwork (scroll to bottom). This page states a number of road schemes they have in mind (more roadworks!!!!).
I hope you are OK. Cheers, Paul Burkhalter
I wondered if you might be able to help a senior colleague of mine at Network Rail and I, as we have exhausted our usual searches at the NRM, other Cornish museums and my book collection. He is looking for:
"a pre-war photograph of Carbis Bay Station, specifically the words ‘Carbis Bay’ written in seashells on the embankment opposite the platform. This sign was demolished in the war and replaced in white cobbles in the 1950s; a photo I have (attached)."
