Padstow is a small town in Cornwall, England. It was described by Richard Cobbett as “a place of some antiquity”. The name Padstow is thought to derive from the Celtic word “pedn” meaning a hillock or tumulus and “treow” meaning tree, which may refer to the three trees on St Piran’s flag.
Padstow has been inhabited since pre-historic times and there are many prehistoric sites in the area such as Tinkers Ball and Trevithick’s Stone. The town grew significantly during Norman times when it became an important trading port for shipping tin from the mines inland.
