Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The settlement at the mouth of the river, on the right hand side of the image, is Polruan. This is the site of one of the two blockhouses built in the fourteenth century to protect the harbour from attack by pirates or the French. A chain was pulled tight across the river between the Polruan and the Fowey blockhouses to stop vessels entering in times of crisis. Although the one on the Fowey side is collapsing beyond repair, the one on the the Polruan side has been largely restored.
