Sea, Salt and Solitude is the latest book from the Fishermen’s Mission. With stunning photography by Chris Hewitt, and words by Deborah Richards, the book tells the story of the fishing communities of Newquay, Padstow, Rock and Port Isaac.

All profits from sales of the book will go to the Fishermen’s Mission, which supports fishermen and their families at times of need.
