Beginning at Godrevy Lighthouse, star of Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, picturesque St Ives Bay and the surrounding communities of St Ives, Halsetown, Carbis Bay, Lelant, Hayle and Gwithian has one of the best-known coastlines in Britain.
This unique collection of photographs depicts many of the dramatic changes that have taken place during the past century along the beautiful curve of the North Cornwall coast.
The fascinating story of these communities is fully explored, such as how Hayle became a nineteenth-century industrial powerhouse, exporting the latest steam technology worldwide, and how the village of St Ives, once a leading fishing port, grew into a thriving tourist town and briefly became the capital of modern art. Volunteers at the St Ives Trust Archive Study Centre, in conjunction with members of the Hayle Community Trust, have combined over 150 previously unpublished images with informative captions to ensure that St Ives Bay Revisited will appeal to all who know and love this delightful part of Cornwall.
