Synopsis

St Austell History Tour takes the reader on a journey through the Cornish town of St Austell, which became the focus of mining prosperity from the Polgooth tin mine era in the eighteenth century. From the old Corn Exchange to the `Cornish Alps' and beyond, Valerie Jacob explains the history behind the town's well-known landmarks. Since then, St Austell has expanded further, with progressive new quarrying of china clay. Today, change in the townscape is a never-ending process, but reminders of its past remain.
