Polruan is a small fishing village in Cornwall, England. It is bounded on three sides by water: to the north by Pont Creek, to the west by the River Fowey and to the south by the English Channel. Polruan is also well protected from the prevailing winds, with Polruan Pool being a haven for small boats. Additionally, Polruan is one of a now increasing number of Cornish places to use watch towers to help marine craft in distress. Many lookout towers were demolished in the 1980s to save costs. Now, thanks to the National Coastwatch Institution (NCI), a voluntary charity, many of the surviving old Coast Guard huts and towers are being re-manned by qualified volunteers.[1]
