A brief history of PadstowA brief history of Padstow

From 1899 Padstow was the home to essential railway links between London and itself. Padstow has essentially been known for its May day Celebrations also called the 'Obby 'Oss festival' which is the biggest festival that takes place in Padstow and has been taking place for many years. From as early as 2,500 BC, Padstow has been used as a harbour linking Brittany to Ireland. Throughout the many years, Padstow has been known to be an essential community because of its position as the only sizeable estuary. The monastery's foundation by St. Petroc in the sixth century finalised its site, and the monks acquired land from Portreath to Tintagel. In medieval times the port grew, and trade with Ireland and Brittany developed and coastal work with South Wales.
