9th April 2021

It was with great sadness that we have today learned of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. Throughout his life he was a truly remarkable and much respected consort to Her Majesty The Queen. He selflessly gave her support, stability and comfort as she led our country through times of enormous social change. 


Others have paid tribute to his devotion and his life of duty and public service and I would like to echo these tributes. He touched the lives of so many people of all generations and will be greatly missed by the Royal Family and a grateful nation.


I will convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Royal Family on their great loss.

Chairman - Portreath Parish Council 

Welcome to Portreath Parish Council

Parish Map

The Parish of Portreath spans a stretch of the North coast between Porthtowan and Gwithian, bordering with the village of Illogan to its South. Its closest towns are Redruth and Camborne.

Our community is very close with many events and gatherings throughout the year.

At the heart of the Parish is the village of Portreath with its beautiful beach.

In the past, Portreath prospered from its busy harbour, exporting tin ore and importing coal for the mining industry. Fishing also played a major role in village life, and continues into the present.

We hope this website can tell you more about our Parish, and the service that the Parish Council carries out here.

Today, Portreath is a very popular tourist destination and the village welcomes our visitors every year. Evidence of our industrial and war time past can still be found all over the Parish. Surfers flock here, as well as families looking for a friendly relaxed holiday.
