St Austell

ST AUSTELL

A major route centre which has seen much recent development and prosperity since the opening of first, Heligan Gardens and then, the Eden Project. Brewing centre and formerly an old tin mining village whose prosperity later relied very much on the china clay industry. The hinterland is made up of white mountainous pyramids, man-made lakes, and palm trees. There is a fine C15 perpendicular church, the Holy Trinity, an C18 coaching inn, The White Hart Hotel and a Georgian Quaker meeting house built in 1829.
