Port Navas

Next year’s Port Navas Regatta will be on Saturday August 5th. We expect to get underway at 4pm and we do hope you’ll be able to join us.

Whether you are a resident or visitor, we hope you’ll use this site to keep up to date with what’s going on in and around Port Navas.

If you have any photos to contribute, or ideas for other items that could be included on our website, please send us an email.  Many of the pictures on our site can be enlarged just by clicking on them.  If you want to re-publish any photos please email us.

The Port Navas Village Hall has a full programme of talks, courses and exhibitions. Please check our programme and do come along and support our events. The hall is here for the benefit of the village and we hope the programme is to your liking.  All comments and suggestions would be most welcome.

You can book the hall for private and group events. There is a modest charge.  Email Mel Chambers or call on 07768 1938488.

Peggy Sheppard has published a second edition of The Story of Port Navas first published in 1994. This edition significantly expands on its predecessor and should be required reading for anyone interested in Port Navas and the surrounding area.

Quay Noticeboard

Following the Duchy of Cornwall’s grant of a License for Access, an information board has been placed on Lower Quay. The intention is to give visitors a flavour of the history of the Quay covering the 152 years since its completion.

Port Navas Quay

The Duchy of Cornwall has granted the Port Navas Village Hall Management Committee a Licence for Access to Port Navas Quay. The intention is that the Quay be available for use by members of the general public for quiet recreation defined as access on foot without vehicles:

  • For the purposes of exercise and the general appreciation of the amenity of the area
  • For recreational crabbing by line

The agreement further permits the use of the Quay for the annual Port Navas Regatta and such other events as may be approved by the Duchy.

Save the Children Trek

Very sad to report cancellation of the Save the Children Trek (apart from Sheila, Carol and Lin who refused to be beaten by the weather). But a splendid tea was enjoyed by all – squeezed into the Port Navas Village Hall but none the worse for that.

Bluebells and Cream Teas at Calamansac

The sun shone and a group of walkers, led by Tiffa, wandered freely through Calamansac woods enjoying the breath-taking display of bluebells. Tea and scones were waiting for us at the house, prepared and served by Margaret, Mary and Lucie. One visitor remarked, as he sat down on the bench outside, “This is the most stunning location I have ever eaten a scone”. Thank you to the Green family.  More photos…

Oyster Farm

The withdrawal of the Wright Brothers oyster farm business from the Helford and Port Navas quay continues a pace and it is expected that it will be complete by the end of March. All of the oyster cages have now been removed from the river and are being taken away and all the other production and processing equipment will be removed.

Members of the Village Hall Committee have agreed a scheme of works with the representative of the Duchy, that will see the surface of the access road and the quay restored, walls rebuilt, the quay ladder replaced and parts of the quay surface turfed. This work is due to start in early April and should be finished for Easter but during the period of the works, the quay will need to be closed for safety reasons. There will be no effect on access to other properties.

Plans for developing a smaller scale native oyster farm are still being developed but are likely to take some time to come to fruition and we will update you as these progress.
