It is somewhere we visited quite often when the children were small, usually on a Sunday. We'd have a picnic lunch on the small beach and the children could play quite safely in the water. Happy days!
The small fishing village is situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which gives it a similar status to a National Park.
It is said that the first fishing pier at Gorran Haven was built way back in the 15th century. Later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a small port.
The pier today, as in the photos, was rebuilt in the early 1800s and later, around 1888, was reconstructed.
