Port Isaac is a small fishing village on the Atlantic Coast of north Cornwall, England. The centre of the village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, from a time when its prosperity was tied to local coastal freight and fishing. The port handled cargoes such as coal, wood, stone, ores, limestone, salt, pottery and heavy goods which were conveyed along its narrow streets. The pilchard fishery began here before the 16th century and in 1850 there were 49 registered fishing boats and four fish cellars. Today, fishing is still an active profession however tourism plays an increasingly important role.[1]
