Harbour Lights

By philhemsley      
Twilight falls upon Newquay Harbour on a winter's evening.

The harbour originally featured a medieval quay. The Victorian harbour, in its present shape, was built by Richard Lomax in 1833 and completed by JT Treffry, a mining entrepreneur.

Newquay Harbour was once linked to the railways, the stone block platform in the harbour is a remnant support from that era. A goods line which developed into the Newquay and Cornwall Junction Railway was opened in 1846 from inland clay mines to the harbour, worked by horses. The last trains ran through to Newquay Harbour in about 1924

No safer harbour at low tide. This is such an eye opener. The light in early evening adds a lot as well. Well done. TG
