Polperro inner harbour, Cornwall
When the tide is out this shallow inner harbour becomes a sea of mud, so for this visit I took the precaution of printing out the tide table. It was worthwhile! Polperro is a very pretty fishing village on the south-east coast of Cornwall. Though it retains a small fish market (seen on the right) and a handful of fishing boats its main income, as is the case with so much of Cornwall, is from tourism. There are two or three lovely pubs, some nice cafes and restaurants and a number of art galleries featuring work by local artists. Cars must be left in the main car park at the top of the hill that leads into the village, but fortunately there is a taxi service provided by what appear to be converted milk floats. I don't mind walking down, but I'm happy to take advantage of a ride back up!
