Porlock in 3d

Porlock

Porlock - The tomb of John Harrington and his wife - 3d image.

Porlock has attracted many unwanted attentions of raiders during its history.

In 918 the inhabitants warded off the attacks of Danish pirates and in 1052 Harold Godwinsson, who set sail from Ireland with 9 ships on an expedition to plunder and murder, attacked the place and set it ablaze.

The church was said to have been truncated in a storm of 1700. It was dedicated to St Dubricius, reputed to have officiated at the wedding of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. The story goes that this Celtic saint so loved Porlock that he settled here and lived to the extremely ripe old age of 150 years.
