Polruan, Lanteglos by Fowey, Cornwall. Around 1912

A view of Polruan from Fowey, showing the village on the hillside with the Fowey Estuary in the foreground. Yachts and small sailing boats can be seen on the river. Clearly visible is the blockhouse fortification, built in the 14th century, that guards the entrance to the River Fowey. The blockhouse is one of a pair, it's partner being situated on the Fowey side of the river. A defensive chain was strung between the two blockhouses to prevent enemy ships entering the harbour, with the chain being lowered for friendly vessels. This was primarily used during the wars with the Dutch. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
