During the 18th-century heyday of smuggling, the people of Devon and Cornwall were largely in favour of a business that provided such a boost to the local economy. This history of the illicit trade examines activity in the secret coves and remote villages around the peninsula (with notes for modern visitors) from the Carter family's stronghold at Prussia Cove, near Penzance, to Lundy Island off the north coast.
