Port Isaac Harbour Repairs

Donation protected
We love our village, and we love our harbour, as I'm sure many of you reading this do. That's why we are asking for your help.

The Harbour is going to struggle going into the future with only two boats to support the infrastructure. There is currently a large chunk of concrete that has come off the outside of the eastern breakwater. The harbour commission is getting a survey done with the view to it be repaired; the estimated cost is eye watering.

In recent years the commercial boats in Port Isaac have depleted from around ten to just two. If there are no commercial boats left in the Harbour there will be no one around to look after the infrastructure and it will be only a matter of time until the breakwaters fall in to disrepair and, with sea levels rising, the bottom of the village will be regularly flooded and become unsustainable and uninsurable.

I do believe if we can keep Global warming at bay we will have a future as a fishing port but it will take time. In the lean period the harbour and the remaining boats will need support from the village and lovers of Port Isaac, if it wants to have a Harbour in the future. The support needed will be moral support and help raising funds to keep the Harbour and fishing infrastructure in place for generations to come.

This is just one example of a major problem in the Harbour at present, there are also many others that need our urgent attention. We would love to have the opportunity to carry out repairs on our fish cellars so they can be used for years to come - these date back to the 16th century and are crying out for some attention as expected by now. There is also a pathway leading down to the breakwaters which has been severely damaged by storms over recent years which we would love to repair.

Your support would mean everything to this tiny corner of Cornwall and would benefit every local, holiday maker, business owner and Port Isaac lover alike. We are eternally grateful for anything you might be able to contribute and would like to thank you so much on behalf of all of the Port Isaac Harbour commissioners.

( I, the harbour master, am posting this on behalf of the Port Isaac harbour commissioners. Once we have reached our target we intend to spend the money directly on fixing our disintegrating harbour wall. if there is any money left over this will be used to repair other areas in the harbour.)
