St. Ia, the St. Ives Parish Church by Beausoleil Star this if you like it!

Walking from the train station to town looking for a restaurant we passed the lovely parish church. It is dedicated to the Celtic saint St. Ia, and also to St. Andrew, patron saint of Fishermen and St Peter, the Rock. The church is built of Cornish granite and its tower is one of the tallest of the Cornish churches, over eighty feet high. The present church building was consecrated in 1434. In 2010 the church celebrated the 600th anniversary of the laying of its foundation stone.
