Port Isaac is a
small and picturesque fishing village on the Atlantic Coast of North
Cornwall, England, UK. The nearest towns are Wadebridge and
Camelford, both ten miles away. Port Gaverne, commonly mistaken to
be part of Port Isaac, is a nearby hamlet that has its own
individual history. The meaning of the name Porth Izzick (modified
in English spelling) is the "corn port", indicating a trade in corn
from the arable inland district.
Since the 1980s the village has served as backdrop to various
television productions, including the ITV series Doc Martin.
The Port Isaac pier was constructed during the reign of Henry VIII.
"...Tudor pier and breakwater have now yielded to a strong new
sea-wall balanced by an arm on the opposite side of the cove, and we
do not doubt that the fishermen sleep more soundly in their beds on
stormy nights." (Arthur Mee: Cornwall; The King's England; London:
Hodder & Stoughton, 1937, p. 184.) The centre of the village dates
from the 18th and 19th centuries, from a time when its prosperity
was tied to local coastal freight and fishing. The port handled
cargoes such as coal, wood, stone, ores, limestone, salt, pottery
and heavy goods which were conveyed along its narrow streets. The
pilchard fishery began here before the 16th century and in 1850
there were 49 registered fishing boats and four fish cellars.
Fishermen still work from the Platt, landing their daily catch of
fish, crab and lobsters.
