Welcome to The Parish Tram web site, a personal view of a beautiful Cornish village, I hope this site will provide an insight to Portreath and be useable to residents and and ever growing number of visitors. If you have any comments or suggestions please email chris@parishtram.co.uk

Portreath is a small village on the North coast of Cornwall, situated between the towns of Camborne and Redruth. In the past Portreath prospered from its harbour, exporting tin ore and importing coal for the mining industry. The fishing community has also been very active and continues into the present.
The main income in the parish is the holiday trade with the beach as our jewel in the crown.


The beach car park is owned by the village and run by a registered charity,
  all funds generated by the car park go toward maintaining the village.

Portreath Parish Council run the administration of the parish dealing with all planning applications, footpaths, highways and any other matters that arise from the Parish of Portreath.
