Artist's Description

This time I tried to get under the waves as they crashed against the jetty, after a soaking, I did get in as much as I could.

In the 19th century Portreath could be taken as a microcosm of the Cornish mining industry. It is now a holiday town although some remnants of the past still exist. A quick explanation just to clarify a couple of the photos.

The small round hut at the end of the pier, known as “Monkey Island”, was built to protect men on lookout duty when the jetty was extended in 1824. There is no public access to this jetty.

The round pilots’ house on the north side of the harbour was also used as a mortuary for wreck victims and others. Thus the name Deadman’s Hut.
