Built to protect a port that was the base of English Privateers during the Hundred Years War, the Polruan and Fowey Blockhouses operated as a pair and controlled a chain barrier that barred access into the harbour. Later the control of the Polruan Blockhouse by Royalist forces would lead to the surrender of a Parliamentary Army under the Earl of Essex.
