The story behind this image

The olde worlde fishing village of Port Isaac on the Atlantic coast of North Cornwall is a sensory delight, with the all the sights, smells and sounds you would expect at the British seaside.

My wife Liz and I made a couple of visits here during our two week stay in the area, enjoying the rugged coastal scenery and quirky steep cobbled streets of the town, leading down to the small sheltered harbour surrounded by imposing sea walls.

Scattered around the harbour are various relics of Port Isaac's maritime history, rusting gently away in the salt laden air, such as this length of heavy chain which was too good to pass by without taking a photograph.
