Hi. I am back online had problems with sending photos etc. Anyway here is a rare photo of a heron on Par beach pond which i took quite a while ago . You dont see herons feeding at the pond much now. Its proberly due to lack of fish ? Hope this photo got through. Andy Cross.
A Market Town since 1189 and has now undergone a major regeneration program .
The new shopping and leisure centre (White River Place) opened October 2009 and employs 500 - 700 people.
Imery's modernized China Clay industry employs 2000 which is a huge drop from the early 20th Century when tin, copper and china clay found in the hills made St Austell a major Cornish industrial centre.
Another industry still alive and kicking is the St Austell Brewery which celebrated 150 years of trading in 2001.
