The Origins Of The Location Of Porthleven In Cornwall

Porthleven was chosen to be the most southerly port on the mainland because of its central location on the coastline of Mounts Bay. There had been many shipwrecks nearby, notably at Loe Bar where ships were driven ashore with loss of many lives. It was decided to construct a safe harbour which faces towards the centre of the bay and the south westerly gales.
