Background: Polperro is a small fishing village originally belonging to the ancient Raphael manor mentioned in the Domesday Book. It is on the south-east Cornwall coast in south west Britain. Situated on the River Pol, four miles west of the major resort of Looe and 25 miles west of the major city and port of Plymouth, it has a picturesque fishing harbour lined with tightly packed houses which make it a popular tourist location in the summer months. Parts of the harbour were rebuilt after destruction by a violent storm in 1817.
