Cornwall - Polperro

Polperro is a village and fishing harbour on the south-east Cornwall coast in South West England, UK, within the civil parish of Lansallos. Situated on the River Pol, 4 miles (6 km) west of the neighbouring town of Looe and 25 miles (40 km) west of the major city and naval port of Plymouth, it is well known for its idyllic location, surrounded by tightly packed old fishermen's houses which makes it attractive to tourists, and particularly in the summer months.
Tourism became Polperro's main industry during the 20th century. The village is accessible by train, using Looe railway station, by road and by boat. It was estimated that the village received about 25,000 visitors a day in summer in the 1970s. Visitors are no longer permitted to take cars into the village, and have to leave them in the main car park at Crumplehorn to the north of the village and walk through the half mile length of the village to the harbour. The village's quaint but narrow streets make driving difficult. There are horse and cart rides and milk floats disguised as trams for those who prefer not to walk.
