Welcome to St Austell
St Austell is a town in Cornwall, England, UK, 10 miles (16 km) south of Bodmin and 30 miles (48 km) west of the border with Devon. St Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall; at the 2011 census it had a population of 19,958.
As in much of Cornwall and neighbouring counties, tourism is increasingly important to St Austell’s economy. Tourists are drawn to the area by nearby beaches and tourist attraction such as the Eden Project, sited in a former clay pit, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The China Clay Country Park, in a former china-clay pit 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the town, tells the story of the men, women and children who lived, worked and played in the shadow of the clay tips around St Austell.
