St Guidel’s Holy Well, Menacuddle, near St Austell: This is a truly magical site, sitting as it does at the foot of a grove of ancient trees and rhododendron bushes, beside a waterfall and river which runs white with the powder from the china clay industry which once so dominated this area. The beautiful Gothic well chapel is now completely clothed in ivy and lichen, giving it the impression of emerging naturally from, or perhaps slowly returning to, the earth.
"LONDON is where I was brought up. It's where my heart is and where I get my inspiration." The words of Lee McQueen greet us as we enter the Savage Beauty exhibition, as its doors finally open at the Victoria & Albert Musuem today.
