Baz Richardson / 10,535 items
This is the beautiful little seaside resort of Looe in the south-east of Cornwall. We have our holiday home just outside the town, and weather permitting we hope to be back there early next week.

Originally the twin towns of East Looe and West Looe (seen here), it has been just the one town since the end of the 19th century. The Looe River had an important role in the 19th century, handling the export of copper and tin ore from the mines on Bodmin Moor. The mining industry closed and Looe developed as a seaside resort and fishing town, with a large fish market on the east bank. Sadly the daily fish auction has moved to Plymouth but Looe still supports a small fishing industry.
