Portloe, Roseland peninsula, Cornwall, England
This is a photo of Portloe, a tiny, untouched, fishing village of Cornwall, United Kingdom. Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. Its name develops from the Cornish 'Porth Logh' meaning “cove pool”. The naturally sheltered position meant that the village grew in the seventeenth and eightheenth centuries as a busy pilchard fishing port. At the beginning of the twentieth century there were more than fifty boats fishing here - now only three boats work from the cove mainly for crab and lobster.
