Whiplash Injury in St Austell


St Austell is a town and coastal resort in Cornwall. In the Domesday Book (1086) it is mentioned as St Awstle, although its name comes from the Cornish saint, Austol. The early inhabitants of what is now the town of St Austell were tin miners, but later copper mines were dug and in the time of Elizabeth I the demand for copper had grown so much that German miners were brought in to mine it in 1580. In 1865 however, there was a dramatic downturn in the price of copper and many mines closed, so miners emigrated to Australia, America and South Africa. The town flourished once again with the mining of china clay and there is, in fact, a China Clay Museum in St Austell celebrating its past source of wealth.
