Padstow
Padstow is a well known harbour town with a long maritime association of fishing and import and export. The Cornish name for Padstow is Lannwedhenek. Padstow is a small town and a civil parish as well has an active cargo / fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall in the administrative district of North Cornwall in the United Kingdom. Padstow is located about a half mile up the mouth of the Camel Estuary opposite the up market resort of Rock.Padstow is best known for its "'Obby 'Oss" festival. Although its origins are unclear, it most likely stems from an ancient fertility rite, perhaps the Celtic festival of Beltane.

Padstow Harbour
During the mid-nineteenth century, ships carrying timber from Canada (particularly Quebec) would arrive at Padstow and offer cheap travel to passengers wishing to emigrate. Shipbuilders in the area would also benefit from the quality of their cargoes. Among the ships that sailed were the barques Clio, Belle and Voluna; and the brig Dalusia. Traditionally a fishing port, Padstow is now a popular tourist destination; although some of its former fishing fleet remains, it is mainly a yachting haven on a dramatic coastline with few easily navigable harbours.
