Newlyn Harbour: This page has been rebuilt in 2017 with new prints and content. It was a page I was quite ashamed of. However, now my printing skills are improving I can be very proud of it now.
When metal prices fell Cornish Miners no longer able to work underground turned to fishing to feed their families. Fishing has always been a major part of Cornwall’s history. When the price of Tin and Copper rose the miners would again seek underground employment and the hope of riches.
The images on this page were taken around Newlyn which is the home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK. Recorded far back in time by the Bishop of Exeter in 1435 this area is steeped in Local History and Heritage. I spent a day with Ben wandering around taking photographs with some reasonable results.
These images were taken during 2009.
The rest of the images on this page were taken away from the main fishing harbour. I very much enjoyed my day around Newlyn. I had some wonderful Fish and Chips and Ben the dog enjoyed himself in the mud.
