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 studios are being turned into a shared space for artists and fishermen as part of a £4 million pound scheme to preserve the building which was in danger of collapsing.
Our Cornwall Correspondent Steve Hardy spoke to Nick Cahill, an historic buildings consultant, and Brian Stevens from St Ives Museum about the discovery:
