Polperro is celebrated as one of the most beautiful villages in Britain, but its history is less well-known and it is this intriguing tale that de Burlet tells in this work. Chapters deal with the earliest records; the vital harvest from the sea; the two parish churches; the smugglers and their tales; customs, rituals and traditions; the water mills; and the two great men of Polperro - Zephaniah Job and Jonathan Couch.
Writer and historian Sheila de Burlet's account of life in her native Cornish village of Polperro was first published in 1977.
