|Newquay Harbour, Cornwall 2019|
However, I used this photo today to compare with how the same scene looked way back in 1875. The main difference being the railway lines stretching onto the middle pier. For a period Newquay was used to export china clay.. The trains enabled workers to load the sailing ships direct from the railway - now only the pier remains.
Today Newquay is a busy holiday resort, known for its surfing and numerous sandy beaches.

Both wonderful views, Mike. The harbor has stood the test of time very well and it looks to be a well-protected harbor. I'm sure that the addition of the stone breakwater in the center means it will remain unchanged.ReplyDelete
Hello Ann, thank you. The harbour is only small but has a smooth sandy beach when the tide is out. The main town here gets packed in the summer with surfers and families - so somewhere to visit out of season.Delete
