Studio Town Location.

26Aug11

Wedding Photography Cornwall: Jeff Murton Studios is located in Fair Street which is an extension of Fore Street. It is roughly at a midway point of the main street through the centre of town. St.Columb Major has a thriving community which is steadily growing with the advent of new housing developments and the arrival of a large superstore on the horizon, close by.  As at August 2011 the parish council inform us that there are 1215 households and 3855 residents. The town boasts its own library, town hall, fire station, primary school or now academy, parish church and bellringers, football club, young farmers club and (bobby) local police officer.  There are two banks, two traditional butchers, a coop, two estate agents, post office, pet shop, Boots pharmacy, three public houses, a flourist, card/gift shop, hardware shop, television/electronics shop, tea rooms, three hair salons, printers, antique shop, general store, financial advisors, sandwich bar and photographers – that’s me!  The community has two rooms/halls with adjoining kitchen and cloakroom facilities for general use known as the Columba Centre.  There are three car parks in town and one large free car park just outside of town three minutes walk away. Every year a large contingent of the community and many holiday makers gather for the hurling of The Silver Ball:  This is a historical event, when locals and townies scramble against one another in pursuit of a hand-sized heavy silver ball; the possessor of the ball attempts to stride the main street while fending off opposition who carelessly attempt to rugby-tackle him to the ground to obtain the same. It officially might not be as I have described and I apologise if I have upset anyone for my inadequate description.  Another annual event is the town carnival. You can see a few images of this event and The Silver Ball on my portrait photography cornwall page.
