Huer's Lookout House
Huer's Lookout House

A single storey white washed building on the cliff edge with commanding views over Newquay Bay.
The building is probably mid 19th century with a typically late medieval Cornish Chimney , possibly dating the origins of the building to the 14th century.
The Huer would watch out from his high vantage point for the shoals of pilchards to arrive in the bay and then call out to the town by shouting 'Heva Heva'. The seine boats with their long nets would be launched with the Huer giving signals to the fishermen -- Recently repaired and painted.
