St Erth railway station is used by the little community of the same name and the surrounding Cornish villages. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the then West Cornwall Railway. It was originally known as St Ives Road, though it was later changed to its present name, and was a popular station for tourists who came to explore St Ives Bay and the long North Cornish coastline. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are managed by Great Western Railway. The old brick ticket office with its overhanding canopy roof is still open and is now Grade II listed. Other facilities at the three-platform station include a footbridge and bench seating. There’s an irregular hourly service direct to Penzance in 10 minutes and Plymouth in 1 hour 45 minutes.
The tranquil village is centred about a winding river and an ancient 15th-century church. Be sure to make some time to admire the village’s other historic sites like the 600-year-old stone bridge and the Medieval lantern.
