St Keverne

St Ives Bay Holiday Park > Towns and villages > St Keverne

St. Keverne village, one mile inland from the coastal path, clusters around the central square; you’ll find whitewashed cottages, two pubs and a handful of shops, all overlooked by the 15th century church of St. Akervnus.

On summer evenings you might catch the St. Keverne Band, or the Male Voice Choir, and the square really comes alive at the annual festivals of the Ox Roast, Carnival and Rodeo. A short walk out of the village brings you to Tregellast Barton, where you can follow lakeside and woodland nature trails.

Two Cornish rebellions, one in 1497, the other in 1547, have their roots in St. Keverne In the church wall, facing the square, there’s a memorial stone to the village blacksmith Michael Joseph, co-leader of the first uprising.

St. Keverne was the site of an important monastery during the Middle Ages. The church is very large for a village church and the tower is topped by a distinctive octagonal spire (unusual in Cornwall), which was probably added as a daymark for ships as they sailed past the treacherous “Manacles” (meaning Church Rocks from the Cornish” Maen Eglos”), a submerged reef just over a mile offshore and scene of many wrecks. Nowadays, The Manacles is a favourite diving site with a wealth of marine life living rocky seabed and remains of many wrecks.
