Perranporth is a
small seaside resort town on the north coast of Cornwall, England,
United Kingdom. It is popular with surfers and tourists because of
its spectacular beach, and Atlantic swell. It is 6 miles (10 km)
southwest of Newquay and 7 miles (11 km) northwest of Truro.
Perranporth and its 3 miles (5 km) long beach face the Atlantic
Ocean. It has a population of 3,066, and is the largest
settlement in the civil parish of Perranzabuloe.
The village's modern name comes from Porth Peran, the Cornish for
the cove of Saint Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall. He founded St
Piran's Oratory on Penhale Sands near Perranporth in the 7th
century. Buried under sand for many centuries, it was unearthed in
the 19th century.
The Voorspoed ran ashore in a northerly gale in Perran Bay on 7
March 1901, while travelling from Cardiff to Bahia. The wreck was
one of the last to be looted.
Perranporth Airfield, built during World War II as an RAF fighter
station, is now a civil airfield. It is located at Cligga Head, on
the plateau above the cliffs.
Until the 1960s, Perranporth was served by a railway line. Built as
the Truro and Newquay Railway, the line ran from Chacewater to
Newquay and the principal intermediate stop was Perranporth station.
Perranporth also had a second station, known as Perranporth Beach
