Why a St Austell cottage?
Up until the mid-eighteenth century, St Austell was nothing more than a small cluster of houses and a church. Clay was discovered to the north and west of the village and resulted in a boom of industry. The village grew into a town and many of the buildings you can see today were built. Visit the Wheal Martyn Museum for an insight into the history of the local clay industry. The popular Eden Project is approximately 2 miles from St Austell, and is in fact located in a disused china clay pit. For more local history you can also visit the St Austell Brewery, the largest brewery in Cornwall.
