A Trip to Looe

7 May

We finally had a rain-free day, so decided to head off to Looe. I’d never been before and I’m so glad we went – and doubly glad we didn’t go during the school holidays!

We hadn’t known that today was the second annual West Looe May Fayre, a small but lovely fair which is now back after a 70 or so year hiatus. There were stalls and crafty things:

And I was particularly enamoured of these green painted and upholstered chairs:

And there was music and the usual assemblages:

And a lovely exhibition of old photographs of Looe in the church:

Looe is actually made up of two towns, East Looe and West Looe, connected by a bridge:

I liked the plaque on the Old Looe Bridge, marking repairs made in the 17th century:

Looe has some remarkably old buildings:

and is a mass of hidden lanes and alleyways:

There are also some rather gorgeous shops:

All in all, it was a splendid day!

    My grandparents used to go to Looe each summer for a holiday. I have fond memories of going to visit them. Thanks for jolting those memories back into my head!
