Newquay has lots of history and the old harbour used to be used for pilchard fishing and then was used to transport tin and china clay during the industrial period. A very special landmark in Newquay is Huers Hut, which is made of stone and is very beautiful with white walls. All of the huts used to be used as lookout posts to see if there were any pilchards about, and if the people saw pilchards they would sound the alarm and then the fishermen would go out to sea to catch them. They were made from wood and unfortunately have all disappeared now, all except Huers hut and because it was made from stone it has managed to survive.
