Polkerris Beach Panorama

Polkerris Beach Panorama

Polkerris beach is situated between Fowey and St Austell. It is part of the Rashleigh estate and, in fact, the pub here is the Rashleigh Inn.

This photo was taken from the harbour wall which curves around the eastern end of the beach.

It has been suggested that the name Polkerris means 'fortified cove' and there are certainly signs of this including the canons, set muzzle first into the rock of the pier.
