Porthallow - Dog Friendly Beach in St Keverne, Cornwall
Reputedly where the spirits of old Cornwall are laid to rest, this village and beach ooze history and whimsy.
The beach felt very empty, despite being part of the village.
Porthallow was once a thriving pilchard fishing village, as witnessed by the 5 Pilchards pub.
I had a long chat with 96 year old Muriel Webb, who waxed lyrical about the old days when fishing and farming were king, and when families and the village knew everyone and stuck together.
When I asked her what she thought the future held, she said she hoped for “an improvement in the state of the Age”, which I took as a positive call to arms, to make the best of whatever the present throws at you, rather like Voltaire’s “Il faut cultiver notre jardin” at the end of Candide.
