Today, on Saturday, there was a fire near Roche Cornwall. These photos were sent to us by Martin Parker
ROCHE, a village and a parish in St. Austell district, Cornwall.
The village gets its name from a granite outcrop east of the village. Roche is the Norman-French word for Rock. On the southern flank of the village is the 20-metre (66-foot) high Roche Rock, a large granite outcrop.
There are several legends attached to this rather spectacular granite outcrop most notably that of Jan Tregeagle, the tortured sinner who tried to find refuge in the chapel here when being chased by demons.
