About St. Columb Major
St Columb Major (Cornish: Plew Golom) is a civil parish and town in Cornwall. The town is often referred to locally simply as St Columb. The suffix 'Major' differentiates the town from the smaller settlement of St Columb Minor, situated on the coast just outside Newquay. This town has been inhabited since the Bronze and Iron Ages and monuments that date from this period include: Castle an Dinas, the site of an Iron Age Hillfort, the Nine Maidens, a stone row which is in fact the largest row of standing stones in Cornwall and the Devil's Quoit, which has also been called King Arthur's Quoit, and also King Authur's Stone. Legend has it that this long lost stone, not far from the Devil's Quoit is marked with four horseshoe indentations. The legend states that the marks were made by the horse ridden by Arthur when he hunted the moors surrounding Castle An Dinas, where allegedly, he once stayed.
Events in St. Columb Major
Twice a year the town plays host to the sport of 'hurling'. This is a medieval game once common throughout Cornwall but now only played in St Columb and St Ives. It is played on Shrove Tuesday and then again on the Saturday eleven days later. The game involves two teams of several hundred people comprising of the 'townsmen' and the 'countrymen' who endeavour to carry a silver ball made of apple wood to goals set two miles (3 Km) apart. Effectively this makes the parish which is approximately 25 square metres in area, the de-facto largest sports ground in the whole world!
