Fraddon is a village in mid Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, in the parish of St Enoder (where the 2011 census population was included ). It is roughly midway between Newquay and St Austell and is south of the linked villages of St Columb Road and Indian Queens.
Just south of Fraddon is the settlement of Blue Anchor. The Blue Anchor Inn is alleged to have been the first stop the King's Messenger made on his journey to announce the victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in October 1805.
Its Brewers Fayre, The Penhale Round, beside the A30 is said to be built on the site of a prehistoric settlement (or in the least named after it) that has had evidence of occupation excavated dating back to Middle Bronze Age (circa 1300-900BC).
