Photographer's Note

The harbour village of Charlestown was a Georgian 'new town', a port development planned by local landowner Charles Rashleigh and built between 1790 and 1810 for the export of copper and china clay.
We visited on a very grey day but this place was full of atmosphere.It was fairly quiet apart from the usual people walking their dogs.It felt as if it had been 'put to bed' for the winter.
As you can see from the piles of lobster baskets there wasn't much fishing being done.
This village has been used in the past for TV dramas as the harbour area is quite unspoilt.
