Door/18 – Polperro

Please click on image for a better view.

Taken in Polperro, in Cornwall, England –  a popular destination because of its tightly-packed and old fisherman’s houses which survive almost untouched, its quaint harbour and attractive coastline.

As early as the 13th century Polperro was a recognised fishing settlement and its first known record is in a Royal document of 1303.

    1. Hi, Charlie. My husband’s grandparents lived in that area in Cornwall, England and I had wanted to see what was part of his boyhood, visiting them. We spent a lovely two weeks in the area, lots of fishing villages, foot paths along the sea, and history galore.
