A St Austell-based company has installed a new webcam overlooking the bay in a bid to help promote the town around the world.
St Austell Conference Centre, which is part of St Austell Printing Company has installed the webcam at their purpose-built premises at Carclaze. The camera provides a 24-hour HD live stream taking in the town and views across St Austell Bay.
Beth Mayman, Operations Manager said: “So many people comment on how stunning the views are from our conferencing and event suites. Because we’re up high, on a clear day it’s possible to see Brown Willy and Bodmin Moor to the east and the satellite dishes of Goonhilly to the west.”
“It’s a privilege to work in an environment where we have such amazing views every day, so we thought we should share them so that everyone can view St Austell Bay whenever they like. We always talk about how proud we are of St Austell. Sometimes it feels like the beauty of the bay gets overlooked.
Beth continued: “There’s so much happening in the town and surrounding areas, we hope this webcam will help to promote our home to people across the globe.”
St Austell Conference Centre offers five conference and meeting rooms and can accommodate events of up-to 100 people. Part of St Austell Printing Company, it sits alongside the purpose-built sustainable factory and business park which boasts tenants including Coodes Solicitors and Aspire and Peninsula Learning Trusts.
