St Ives Gallery

An important fishing town from Medieval times known principally for the exporting of Pilchards, the pier was built in 1770 by John Smeaton. The Great Western Railway reached St Ives in 1877, with it came the Victorian holiday makers and the seeds of the present town were sowed.

Smeaton’s Tower at the end of the pier. A dramatic image in which I used a red filter to turn the sky black

St Ives 3

Most of the town was built in the 19th Century, the rooftops going up the hill make an interesting image.
