Tidal Observatory, Newlyn, Cornwall. The fishing industry in Newlyn on the south coast of Cornwall expanded in the 1880s, resulting in the construction of a new harbour and two piers. In the early 20th century, the south pier was extended and a tidal observatory was built at its north end. The observatory was one of three constructed at the request of Ordnance Survey to establish mean sea level
