Port Gaverne was once a busy port used to export slate from the nearby Delabole slate quarry. It was also a very active seining port and the pilchard cellars were capable of processing around 1000 tons of fish per week. Two of the four large pilchard cellars built in the early 1800s are now owned by the National Trust, these being the Rashleigh and Union cellars. National Trust signage can be seen to the left of the opening in the stone wall. Photographer: Charles Woolf.
