The Victorian Internet

This is apparently the last remaining cable hut anywhere- where undersea cables come ashore from foreign climes. (Although not trans-atlantic, being south of Lands End, these ones go to places like Portugal, Gibraltar & Bilbao). It is a unique relic of the Cable Museum at Porthcurno.

Despite both Karen and myself being steeped in Telecommunications heritage, the museum wasn’t quite as interesting as we were expecting it to be. It does have some interesting wartime tunnels though.
