A St Ives landmark which has been home to artists and fishermen for one hundred and fifty years is back in use. Porthmeor Studios has undergone a four million pound 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.
