£4 million facelift for Porthmeor Studios

A St Ives landmark which has been home to artists and fishermen for 150 years is back in use.

Porthmeor Studios has undergone a £4 million facelift. It was in such a poor state, parts of the building were in danger of collapse.

The fishermen are housed in former pilchard cellars, the artists above them in purpose built studios.
