A Note from the Artist

Portreath is a fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall. The village is about three miles northwest of Redruth and extends along both sides of a stream valley centring on the harbour and beach. 

A top of North Cliff at Portreath is the daymark known locally as the Pepperpot.

It was built as a sign to passing shipping so they knew where they were. It was built in 1846 and also used as a coastguard lookout. It also served as a ‘Huer’s Hut’, from where in times gone by a Spotter would alert the local fishermen to the presence of shoals of Pichards off shore by giving the “hue & cry”,
