ST ENDELLION PORT GAVERNE Rashleigh Cellars including Salter's Cottage

GV II Fish cellars, now used as store, garages and domestic accommodation. Circa early C19. Partly rendered stone rubble and cob. Brick and weather-boarded kipper house on west. Rag and scantle slate roofs with hipped ends. 2 storey main range on south east with courtyard in front, flanked by narrow 2-storey projecting wing on south west with kipper house and narrow single-storey wing on north east, open-fronted to yard with roof supported on timber posts. Enclosing the cobbled yard on the north west, a front wall with central entrance and double doors. The pilchard catch was loaded into leaky hogsheads and placed on a wooden platform or gutter, against the wall. The fish were then crushed by large stones, suspended from long pressing beams which were slotted into the brick niches which remain intact along the stone rubble wall of the north east wing. The herring catch was kippered in the smoking house in the south west wing which remains largely intact with the louvered openings partly restored. The nets and tackle were kept in storage lofts on the south west and additionally, the cellars were also used to store merchandise such as coal which was landed at the quay of Port Gaverne to the north. The Rashleigh cellars retain their largely unaltered plan. 3 other cellars also remain to the north west ( qv Union Cellars), to the north east (Venus Cellars) and to the east (Liberty Cellar).
