Huer's watch-house

Sign in to follow this  

It is possible that the quaint coastguard lookout and daymark, familiar to everyone on top of the cliff at Portreath, was originally the Huer’s watch-house as it was built before 1814. The“ Huer “ was the person who immediately gave the alarm to the people in the harbour below by crying “Hevva !”, whenever a school of fish had been sighted. His watch-house or Huer’s house was situated somewhere above the harbour.
