(8 photos) My late summer pilgrimage to some of England’s great gardens began in Cornwall. Here are a few views of Cornwall from our base in the pretty town of Fowey. Above is the town of Polruan, and below is an intriguing inlet on the River Fowey. Looks like the perfect hiding place for pirate treasure.
Below is the house of author Daphne Du Maurier.
Below, the River Fowey.
The oldest parts of Fowey town date from before 1300.
The Fowey Parish Church was built in the early 14th century.
Readymoney Cove (below) seems to me to be another perfect pirate place.
Some local cuisine.
