Port Isaac, Cornwall
Number of views as of 15th March 2014 = 2970.
The centuries old village and harbour of Port Isaac is situated on the Atlantic coast, mid-way between Newquay and Bude, Cornwall, UK.
From the Middle Ages until the 1850s, Port Isaac was a busy port, handling stone, coal, timber and pottery. With the advent of the railways, it became principally a fishing port.
UK TV viewers will know it as the location for the classic period drama ‘Poldark’ and more recently as ‘Port Wen’ in the drama/comedy series ‘Doc Martin’, starring Martin Clunes.
Long before the pier was built in the 16th century, the village had a smuggling past and was associated with a gentleman(!) by the name of Cruel Copinger!
This shot was taken 20+ years ago on Fujichrome slide film, and recently scanned using a Plustek OpticFilm 7200.
