A cellar used by St Ives fishermen two hundred years ago has been uncovered.
The cellar was found by workmen renovating studios which front Porthmeor beach. It's been buried under several feet of sand and was used for the local pilchard fishing industry which once thrived in the town.
The cellar's cobbled floor contains the channels which were used to drain oil from the pilchards.
The oil was used for lamps and in medicine. Archaeologists have been mapping out the cellar before it is covered by the renovation work.
