It’s not just sun, sand and surf at Perranporth Beach. Today local residents and visitors were treated to a serious of fascinating and fun talks on the history and heritage of our beach.

The event was organised by the Museum working in partnership with Exeter University. Speakers were experts in a wide range of fields from mining, seine fishing and geology to beach combing and the features which inspired Winston Graham to pen his Poldark books.

There were also themed art workshops on the Inner Green.
