This is an update of the video made last year, with additional material (the town's Titanic victims (and survivors), Kidz R Us theatre, the Leach Pottery, Alfred Wallis, the library and the Court Cocking inferno).
For potential tourists it shows all the major areas of the town and in the first few seconds has a superb aerial shot of the town showing the relative positions of the 3 main bathing beaches and the harbour. The walking distance between Porthminster and Porthmeor beaches is about 500-600 yards. The distance from the town centre to Higher Stennack is about 2/3 of a mile (uphill).
