Film & Audio Archive


The Audio Archive is a collection of recorded interviews and other material, some dating back thirty years or more. Many aspects of Cornish life are represented including working in the quarry, as a fisherman, at war, school, running a business, and living through the Newlyn clearances and the riots. We also have poetry recitals, comic tales, and music and song from choirs and individuals.

Th e Newlyn Archive is always willing to accept any donated audio footage, in any format, for copying and inclusion into the Archive.

Film Archive

The Film Archive is an eclectic mix of old newsreel, home video, feature films and documentaries with a focus on Newlyn, Lamorna and West Cornwall Art.  It includes films on the fishing industry and the harbour as well as other industries, past and present. There are films about leisure activities, storms and events, art and artists, and feature films that used Newlyn and the surrounding area as film locations.
