Parish History[edit | edit source]
Hayle (Cornish: Heyl); church of St Elwyn was built in 1886-88 to the design of J. D. Sedding. According to Pevsner it is "loud outside ... and dull inside" [Pevsner, N. (1970) Cornwall; 2nd ed., rev. by Enid Radcliffe. Penguin; p. 80]
Hayle parish was created in 1888 from part of the now defunct Phillack, Cornwall parish, with which it was later combined in 1935, and incorporated part of St Erth, Cornwall in 1937. The modern parish shares boundaries with St Ives, Cornwall to the west, St Erth to the south, Gwinear and Gwithian in the east
