St Hilary village, Cornwall

St Hilary is a small village consisting of granite cottages, the dwelling houses of its former miners. The village lies just under three miles northwest of the town of Marazion in West Cornwall. Along with its neighbouring villages of Goldsithney and Relubbus, St Hilary grew up alongside the B3280 road.

The area as implied earlier was a hive of activity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with arguably two of Cornwall's greatest mines nearby at Wheal Vor and Great Work. The chief mines of the Halamanning - St Hilary area were Wheal Friendship and Penberthy Croft Mine and a walk through the countryside around here will almost certainly lead you to some sort of industrial remain or other.

The area lies bounded by the towns of Penzance, Helston, Falmouth and Camborne - offering the chance to have some retail therapy. St Hilary is well-placed to explore the far west of Cornwall, be it the moors and ancient standing stones of Penwith or the scenery stretching south east from Mounts Bay past Cudden Point and onto the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. There is once again something for everyone in this part of Cornwall!
