Fishermen raise £100,000 in a week in fight to save historic Cornish cove from developers

A community fundraiser to save three historic buildings in Cornwall’s “last full-time fishing cove” has raised more than £100,000 in just one week.

Cadgwith Fishing Cove Trust is fundraising to save the seventeenth-century buildings, which are now up for sale despite still being used by fishermen in the picturesque cove on the Lizard Peninsula.

The buildings are vital to the eight-strong fishing fleet who use them to store gear, process their catch and run community events, and they are also home to an art gallery and two fresh fish shops.

Cadgwith’s fishermen fear they could be sold to private developers and turned into “yet more second homes and holiday lets” – putting the village’s centuries-old fishing traditions at risk.

The community has been offered first refusal on all of the buildings but they must now raise £300,000 to stop them being listed on the open market.
