Sister cities of St Erth
St Erth (Cornish: Lannudhno) is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.
The village is four miles (6.5 km) southeast of St Ives and six miles (10 km) northeast of Penzance.
St Erth takes its name from Saint Erc, one of the many Irish saints who brought Christianity to Cornwall during the Dark Ages, and is at the old crossing point of the river Hayle. The Cornish name of the place derives from St Uthinoch of whom little is known.
The parish shares boundaries with Ludgvan in the west, Hayle in the north, and St Hilary in the south.
The current church of St Erth was built around 1215, though an older church is said to have stood on St Erth Hill overlooking the village. St. Erth also has a railway station situated 0.75 miles from the village, along the branch line between St Ives and Penzance.
