In this 24/7 webcam, you can perfectly see the small English fishing town of Port Isaac, nestled among the rugged and picturesque scenery on the north coast of Cornwall.
The lively village of Port Isaac, with its narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed cottages, has a rich history. It was in this town that the series “Doc Martin” and “Fisherman’s Friends” were filmed.
In the online camera, besides the coast of Port Isaac, you can see in live feed the pier, built during the reign of Henry VIII.
The very settlement of Port Isaac, which can be seen online, dates back to the 18-19th centuries, when its prosperity was associated with local coastal shipping and fishing. In addition to corn, the port in the webcam handled cargoes of coal, wood, stone, ore, limestone, salt, pottery and heavy goods, which were transported through its narrow streets.
The sardine fishery was especially active in Port Isaac, it began before the 16th century. In 1850, 49 fishing vessels and 4 fish cellars were registered. And today fishermen work hard here, catching fish, crabs and lobsters.
The historic center of Port Isaac in this webcam was declared a protected area in 1871. In 2008, the North Cornwall District Council reviewed and approved a detailed assessment document for the Port Isaac Conservation Area with development of an appropriate management plan for the protected area. There are about 90 buildings in the village that are included in a special protected list.
The online camera also captures the lifeboat station Port Isaac, created in 1869 after the delivery of two boats, “Richard” and “Sarah”. Until recently, the former boathouse housed a post office, but now there is a gift shop.
Today, the Port Isaac team and coastal rescuers work at the station 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ensuring the safety of part of the north coast of Cornwall.
In July 2012, the crew of the lifeboat were awarded medals for bravery following a dangerous rescue operation.
Port Isaac is a popular destination for long walks. Situated on the Southwest Coast path, the city is followed by tourists along the 1010 km National Trail. There are also shorter routes in the area.
