Located in The Warren overlooking the harbour, the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing houses a remarkable collection of exhibits and 19th century photographs as well as many items of memorabilia dating from the 18th century when both smuggling and fishing thrived in Polperro. It vividly brings to life the story of this Cornish fishing village’s extraordinary history and many of the people who featured in it. Displays also include more recent events such as storm damage, and a rare archive film of pilchard fishing in the 1930s.

Coast Path Walks

29Feb

Come to the beach anywhere in the South West of England, turn left or right and you’ll be on the South West Coast Path and on the edge of an amazing experience.

Walk – Talland Bay from Polperro

3.7 miles

Moderate – On footpaths and quiet country lanes, which may be muddy. There are stretches of both ascent and descent, occasionally steep.

A short walk along the Coast Path to the smugglers’ bay at Talland, where the nineteenth-century vicar danced around the graveyard at night ‘exorcising ghosts’ to keep people away so that the smugglers could hide their haul in the church! The walk starts in the picturesque fishing village of Polperro, with its narrow streets of tiny cottages and ancient steps carved in the rocks above the cave on the beach. Allow time to pause in the Heritage Museum en route for its tales of the smugglers and fishermen in Polperro’s colourful past.

This is just one of amazing South West Coast Path walks you can take around Polperro, to view more visit the South West Coast Path website – CLICK HERE
