Steamers House Purchase Complete


We are delighted to announce that we have this week completed the purchase of Steamers House in Cadgwith.

This large fishing loft (together with the Crows Nest Art Gallery and Cadgwith Cove Crab Shop) is now preserved and maintained for the fishermen of Cadgwith forever.


This is the second of our three step plan to save the fishing buildings in Cadgwith, the first being to secure the Winch House which we are now running and maintaining (having leased it from the Parish Council on a 125 year lease).

The third and last step in our plan is the purchase of Fort York, which is the other fishing cellar, and we are making good progress on that, having reached the contract stage in discussions with the current owner.   We hope to have more good news on that soon.

This was once a seemably unachievable dream, but your kind donation has made it a reality, and all the fishermen are so grateful for your support.   Thank you.
