History of the Driftood Spars

The Spars in the Driftwood relate to the huge beams or spars that keep the Driftwood standing.  They were salvaged from shipwrecks along the coast and were utilised to build the Driftwood in the 1650s.  The building itself offers a wealth of history having been converted from a tin mining warehouse, chandlery, sail making loft and fish cellar over the years to a hotel with bar in the early 1900’s and a public bar in the 1940’s.
