Padstow Harbour 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle (G476)
Padstow is a town, civil parish and fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall, England and is situated on the west bank of the River Camel estuary approximately 5 miles northwest of Wadebridge.
Padstow was originally named Petroc-stowe after the Welsh missionary Saint Petroc, who landed at Trebetherick around AD 500. After his death a monastery was established here which was of great importance until the town was raided by the Vikings in 981. Later, monks moved inland to Bodmin taking with them the relics of St Petroc which was important both in Padstow and Bodmin.
Terry Harrison captures the tranquil atmosphere of the harbour after the fishermen have retired for the afternoon and gone for a quick pint in the local pub.

About the artist:
Terry Harrison was born near Wendover and attended Farnham Art School before becoming a graphic artist in London. Later, he joined the Yellow Pages as an illustrator and then Thompson Directories in their Farnborough head office. During his spare time, Terry pursued his first love; landscape painting. By 1984 the demand for his original work was so great that he decided to paint full time and never looked back! After just 12 short years Terry was awarded the Best Up and Coming Published Artist it of The Year by the Fine Art Trade guild, and five years later in 2001, Terry had his first book, ‘Brush with Watercolour’ published and sold over 140,000 copies. It’s no surprise that Terry Harrison can claim to have his drawings in most homes throughout the country.
