A Stroll Around Poldark's Charlestown Harbour, Cornwall - 12 Photos

Charlestown Harbour, Cornwall

Had a mooch round the harbour at Charlestown, Cornwall yesterday morning (27-June-19). It was a lovely sunny day, though the sea was quite choppy because of a cooling wind - as you can see by some of the photos.

Most of the photos are self explanatory so I won't waffle on too much.

I did get a bit of a soaking when the sea splashed against the harbor wall - hair and shirt got quite wet!

The two gentlemen below were fishing from the sea wall but didn't seem to have much success.

The next photo is looking west from the harbour wall, there is yellowish lichen on the top of the wall.

Still looking west there is a small beach.

The Pier House is convenient for a coffee or a beer. They also do meals - we had a very pleasant family meal there on my wife's birthday.

Looking down at the adjoining port there are two tall sailing ship in dock. One was used for Poldark scenes. Charlestown has got considerably busier since the Poldark factor.
