About this book

Nestling on the beautiful Camel Estuary, Padstow's colourful harbour is surrounded by pastel-washed fishermen's cottages and a glorious collection of shops and restaurants. Meanwhile, just a short ferry ride away is the pretty village of Rock. Their location on the stunning north Cornish coast makes them hugley popular with the young and old alike, offering an ecclectic mixture of sedate cream teas in Padstow and Atlantic rollers at Polzeath, wildlife on the estuary and nightlife in Rock.

With clarity and affection, the author chronicles in photos a year in the life of this most charming corner of North Cornwall, from the festive to the picturesque, from the enduring pagan traditions of the 'Obby 'Oss and 'Mummers', to spectacular land and seascapes through the seasons.
