Not that much, It is on the UK on the British Channel, It is not an Island it is a very touristic place, not big but famous, where all the houses are old and the number of Pubs is incredibly high. The architecture is typical of the zone, so you can narrow it to a very small stretch of coast and besides it has a funny name that does not sound like English, a name that seems to have come from a Popey movie


You guys can ask some relevant questions to narrow it down and I will answer quickly

Regards

Paulo

No, but it is in Cornwall. Padstow is not on the Channel, try on the other shore of Cornwall.

The place is a natural harbor that was improved with a closed wall with an heavy iron gate that its closed at high tide maintaining the boats afloat when outside the big channel tides takes the waters away. That wall and the interior port is a well defined characteristic that you will see on the map or googlearth.

For many years their main business was smuggling
