The harbour village of Charlestown was a Georgian 'new town', a port development planned by local landowner Charles Rashleigh (after whom it was named) and built between 1790 and 1810 for the export of copper and china clay.
It has survived as a working port and a small amount of china clay is still exported, but it is more well known as a film location due to the magnificant three square-rigged sailing ships which are moored in the harbour.
Charlestown and its original Grade II Listed Harbour, has largely escaped development and remains one of the finest and most fascinating places on the Cornish coast. Now part of a World Heritage Site, it attracts thousands of people to visit every year.
