Portreath (Port) Port (United Kingdom)
Portreath was an important ore port, particularly in the 19th century. Ore was exported from here and coal and other mining gear imported.
Initially mules were used (up to thousand a day) but in the 19th century their duties were taken over by the Poldice Tramway and then also a branch of the Hayle railway. The most spectacular part of the system was the Portreath decline.
