Porthmeor Studios transformed

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.

In a remarkable transformation, the fishermen are now housed in former pilchard cellars and the artists above them in newly renovated studios.
