Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Polperro is a very picturesque fishing village in a ravine created by the tiny River Pol, on the coast of Cornwall, 3 miles from Looe.

In days gone by it was notorious for smuggling. This led to the first Preventive Service in England being set up here in 1801.

Built of stone, the village has a tiny harbour, narrow streets and steps and alleyways filled with little cottages.

The Smugglers` Museum is in the 16th century house owned by the grandfather of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch.

It is not possible to bring cars down into the village. They have to be left at the top of the hill at Crumplehorn.
