During my Cornwall tour we also visited Mousehole a charming little town which had developed around its harbour (and of course the fishing fleet that sustained it). It's name appears in the record books as an important fishing port from as early as 1266, in fact, part of the south quay originates from 1390 - possibly the oldest pier in Cornwall. The fishing industry has declined drastically over the last 100 years, but a few fishing boats maintain the long heritage and tradition of a working harbour, whilst the majority of vessels now lying at anchor are pleasure craft.
We walked along the harbour
It was low tide and the boats were sitting on the ground.
It was a pleasure to see all these old typical houses
lots of flowers and plants
pastel painted houses and the old church tower
and finally we found a very old Pub which had a cute little terrace on the roof, where we had a nice cup of tea to warm us up !
