St. Austell, Cornwall
The largest town in Cornwall is named after the 6th-century St. Austol, who was born in Cornwall but went on to spend much of his life in Brittany, France. He was a close friend to St. Méen, who had founded an abbey in Brittany. Austol died just a week after his friend and supposed godfather's death. Like many of the towns in Cornwall, St. Austell is geared toward tourists.
