Harbour wall with cannon bollards, Polkerris, Tywardreath, Cornwall. 1976
View of the harbour wall towards the sea and across the cove showing part of the village. A man and child are paddling in the water. Polkerris is on the west side of the Gribben promontory and on the east side of St Austell Bay. The view shows Napoleonic era cannons embedded in the harbour wall as bollards, which lends credence to one possible meaning of the name Polkerris - 'Fortified Cove'. Polkerris has been part of the Rashleigh family's Menabilly Estate from the late 16th century and the estate built the half-moon quay in 1775 to help the seine fishing industry. By the 1870s, the industry was in decline. Photographer: Charles Woolf .
