Situated just east of Newquay and to the South West of Wadebridge the area has excellent transportation links via the A30 to anywhere in the county. Newquay Cornwall airport is also located here with regular national and international flights.

The area has a diverse population with a wide variety of age groups representative. The area has a strong local tradition and a family feel where members of the community can wander down the streets and bump into people they know.

The area has a rich history and many ancient monuments including Castle an Dinas, an Iron Age Hilfort, The Nine Maidens Stone Row, the largest of standing stones in Cornwall, and St Columba's Holy Well found in the nearby hamlet of Ruthvoes.

Twice a year the town plays host to "Hurling", a medieval game once common throughout Cornwall. The game involves two teams, the "Townsmen" and the "Countrymen", who endeavour to carry a silver ball made of apple wood to goals set two miles apart, making the parish the largest pitch for a ball game anywhere in the world.

The town has one Police Constable (Neighbourhood Beat Manager) and two PSCO's, response duties are covered by neighbouring station such as Bodmin, Wadebridge and Newquay. The Sergeant is based Wadebridge and covers St Columb.

One interesting fact about the area is that in 1992 Australian stuntman Matt Coulter aka The Kangaroo Kid set the record for the longest jump on a quad bike at the towns Retallack Adventure Park which is still used for racing today.
