The Book of St Austell (pdf e-book)
The Book of St Austell (pdf e-book)
  • Description

From a small market town, St Austell has developed into an urban centre, experiencing much growth and change. This lavish book looks back to the sleepy parish of olden days with its ‘opes’ and lanes, and a Fore Street packed with family businesses, through to the modern Eden Project, which has brought the town international attention.

The book considers how traditional local industries, such as farming, fishing and mining – including the world-renowned china-clay industry – have helped to shape this Cornish community. It draws on a wealth of photographs, many of them never previously published, and reveals the people who have helped shape the town and its significant buildings.

All this, and much more, is detailed in this 160 page book, copiously illustrated throughout with over 200 historic photographs of the places and people who have made up the thriving community of St Austell and its surrounding parish.
