Welcome To Sancreed Parish Website
With a population which has stabilised at just over six hundred, Sancreed is a farming country with most residents seeking employment outside the parish. It is rich in historical sites such as the Iron Age settlements at Caer Bran and Carn Euny and its thirteenth-century church was famously painted in 1898 by Stanhope Forbes, father of the Newlyn School of Art. The church and the nearby Holy Well attract many visitors and the parish is extremely popular with walkers and cyclists. Savour the vista from Sancreed Beacon with its panoramic views over West Cornwall and it is easy to understand why.
