St Ervan

Cornwall Information & Accommodation Guide

St Ervan parish and church town lie inland of the North Cornish coast.

Famous for being featured in Sir John Betjeman's poem, 'Summoned by Bells' the church still displays both bell and poem.

A Royal Naval Air Station operated within the parish during the Second World War.

The parish church which is dedicated to St Hermes was restored between 1887 and 1889. The church is cruciform and dates from the 13th century. The upper part of its tower fell into disrepair and was pulled down in 1883. The tower was rebuilt in 1955.

There were formerly four mills in the parish but now only Millingworth and parts of Trethewey can be seen.

Within the parish there was also a chapel at Trembleath, part of the Arundell family mansion, but nothing remains of it.

St Ervan formed part of the fief of Pawton and was a Peculiar.

The remains of barrows are scattered throughout the parish at Trembleath, Bogee and Bears Downs. A standing stone (menhir) is listed at Music Water.

The two main hamlets in the parish are Rumford and Penrose.
