Poster Print of A view of the front of Carlyon Bay Hotel After the fire in 1931, St Austell, Cornwall. 27th-28th December 1931

"Built in 1925, this was the first hotel at Carlyon Bay and was originally called the St Austell Bay Hotel. The hotel quickly became a fashionable choice with movie stars and celebrities and was frequented by a famous Royal visitor, Edward, then Prince of Wales, and his future wife, Mrs Wallis Simpson. The building suffered the devastating fire on 27th December 1931. Locals who rushed to the scene to help were met with the sight of furniture being frantically thrown from the windows to save it from the flames. During the war years, two boys' schools from Canterbury, The Kings' School and St Edmund's, were evacuated to the hotel to escape the Blitz. In March 1944, General Montgomery came to the hotel to inspect the schools' cadet force. (In April 2015, a special 70th Anniversary Reunion was hosted at the hotel for the surviving evacuees and their partners). There was considerable excitement when Sir Winston Churchill stayed at the hotel with his wife Clementine in 1953. The hotel became part of the Brend Group in 1982". Source: Brend Hotels, 2018. It remains a top class hotel and boasts a championship golf course. Photographer: Probably Arthur William Jordan
