Stithians is a village and parish in a beautiful rural location between Redruth, Helston and Falmouth.
The name is believed to derive from the dedication of the parish church to St Stithian, of whom little is known.
Stithians is famous for its Agricultural Show which takes place every July on the local Feast Day. See Events for information.
The village has its own band – the St Stithians Silver Band and a male and ladies choir.
The parish contains a large number and variety of archaeological remains from standing stones, rounds, stone crosses and a holy well to the industrial heritage of the gunpowder mills of the Kennal Vale. See Kennal Vale listing for more information on the history of this area.
