Living in St Agnes: The local area guide

St Agnes is a picturesque ex-mining village on the rugged north coast of Cornwall, south west England. It's a big tourist attraction thanks to its beaches, beautiful coastline, and pretty architecture, and is conveniently closer to the larger towns of the area such as Newquay, Redruth and Truro.

The village belongs to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and has itself been designated a World Heritage Site. It's a site of significant geological, historical and archaeological interest. There's evidence of human habitation, and human mining, dating from the Bronze and Iron Ages. It was the natural abundance of tin that led to the development of the village throughout the middle ages and into the industrial revolution, providing ample employment for local men.

All good things come to an end, however, and in the early decades of the 20th century mining began to fade and eventually completely left the area. Long lines of miners found themselves out of a trade, but the area has bounced back remarkably. The traditional Cornish resilience and optimism, combined with the booming tourist industry, has meant that St Agnes has not suffered too much. Still, the abandoned mines dotting the landscape stand as a poignant reminder of an age gone by.

Today, the outstanding community spirit and friendliness of the local people have meant St Agnes is one of the most popular tourist destinations in England, drawing thousands of visitors from across the country and elsewhere.

Demographics

Around 4,500 people live in St Agnes today, and they make up an impressively close-knit, friendly and creative community. Like the rest of Cornwall, the average age is higher than that for the rest of the UK at 45.

Unemployment for the region is fairly low at 2.3%, 1% lower than the rate for England. And levels of home ownership are high - nearly 70%, well over the 62% rate for England as a whole.

Cornwall, in general, is known for the warmth and friendliness of the people, which is part of the reason its tourist industry does so well, and St Agnes is no exception. The locals are always happy to welcome a new face, and throw plenty of events and celebrations throughout the year showcasing their lust for life.

Education

The parish itself is home to some excellent schools for young children offering parents plenty of choice. Very close by are Blackwater Community Primary School, Mount Hawke Academy, Mithian Primary School and St Agnes Primary School.

Once children are past the age of 11, they tend to move to a school within nearby Redruth or Truro. Truro, in particular, has excellent secondary schools including Penair, Truro School, Truro High School and Richard Lander. For 6th form, many choose to go to Truro College.

Transport

Like many other UK towns and villages, St Agnes lost its own railway station in the 1960s. These days, the nearest options for a good rail service are Newquay, Redruth and Truro, which has regular trains travelling upcountry.

There are regular and cheap buses running through the village, however. First South West run the service. Despite this, Cornwall is best explored by car in order to enjoy true freedom to discover everything it has to offer.

Amenities and shopping

St Agnes' winding streets are full of quirky, interesting independent craft stores, artisan shops to go along with the normal conveniences.
