Group Description

We are a group of village residents from Porthtowan Cornwall. I established the Group in 2007 to try & provide a forum for everybody to share their views and opinions about the potential uses and management of the dunes to the rear of our lovely village beach. Our aim is stop the short-term fire fighting actions of Cornwall Council and to get a proper evidence based management for our lovely beach and dunes.

We have a very active and open FACEBOOK page also called Porthtowan Dunes Group with nearly 500 people reading our news and posting comments and photos. Please share or add any comments, make any observations,offer your opinion or help. If you have any questions please get in touch and ask us

The idea is to ensure in the future, those of us who live in the Village & look after the beach &the local environment will be consulted and have the greater say about how the beach area and dunes are managed, what taxpayers or grant money is spent on them and what the money is best used for and how our village community & visitors alike can use them.

Please have a look at all the photos I have pulled together, from the links above and you will see how the area has changed since the dunes were established in their current position in the 1960's following the Torre Canyon Oil tanker disaster.

We have a lot of information about how the dunes came into being and when and why they were built. If you can add to this history or you have any photos or stories which would help with the records we are trying to build up then please let me know, either through this page or direct to my email at... rosetrengove@btinternet.com

If you prefer a Facebook group format then you can find the Dunes Group on Facebook under the same name:Porthtowan Dunes Group.

Thanks very much,I hope you enjoy the photos & most importantly please join the debate about the future of the area.

Rose Trengove; West Cliff Porthtowan
