Newquay Warnings and Dangers: 7 reviews and 15 photos
Just up the road from Fistrel beach is a nice scenic area which can get very windy. It's a bit of a climb, but there's a small covered area at the top. Best avoided when windy as some people are tempted to peer over the edge.
I have added a picture of The Huers Hut. The Huer was the lookout man who sat in his hut watching for the schoal's of Mackeral fish coming close into the bay, to let the people of the town to get their nets ready to get a good catch. This would then last them the season for food and money. Mackeral was used for all sorts of things in the early years, even to using the fish oil to light the street lamps of Cornwall. It's a bit windy up there, but someone had to do it.
