Photographer's Note

Port Isaac once again and a view of the breakwater that protects the harbour and the village.

I am unsure as to where the pier stood but, "A pier was constructed during the reign of Henry VIII."
A 1937 history said "....Tudor pier and breakwater have now yielded to a strong new sea-wall balanced by an arm on the opposite side of the cove. We do not doubt that the fishermen will sleep more soundly in their beds on stormy nights."

The historic core of the village was designated a Conservation Area in 1971.
The village has around 90 listed buildings, all Grade II.

Due to the steep sides of the cove, this shot was taken looking over a wall, hence the plants in the immediate foreground.

Two more shots in the workshop.
