Historic Buildings in Cornwall: - Hevva! - Huer's Hut, Newquay

This striking little building is believed to date from the fourteenth century.

It was used as a look-out point when shoals of pilchard were expected to arrive in Newquay Bay. The huer would call on a horn to alert the townspeople, creating a hue and cry.

The elevated position above the bay allowed to huer to use hand signals to guide the fishing boats to surround the pilchard shoal and close in on them trapping the pilchards in their nets.

Before this use, it was possibly a hermitage, where the hermit may have been responsible for lighting a signal fire to aid shipping.

The building has a fireplace which was altered in the nineteenth century but the chimney is late medieval in the typical Cornish style.

In 2015, television personality, Phillip Schofield, donated £8000 towards the restoration of the Huer's Hut.
