Description

THERE IT WAS GONE

A little piece of Kernow has been taken today ! The blockhouse at the end of the harbour pier that has been there for years has been swallowed by the sea today. Sometimes known as the monkey house the building at the end of the pier was a shelter for the harbour pilot in times of rough seas but today it was taken by the sea itself. Portreath harbour in the 18th century was a major port for the mining industry exporting the hard won tin and copper from the large deposits in Cornwall and for the import of precious coal for the many beam engines as Cornwall does not have any coal of it's own.
