St Ives

St Ives is a popular holiday resort of about ten thousand people lying on the coast of Cornwall about ten miles to the north east of Penzance. The town’s early prosperity was founded on pilchard fishing.  In the nineteenth century, the trade in tin and copper added to the port’s importance. Later, St Ives became a Mecca for artists, the best known being sculptor Barbara Hepworth, whose works can be viewed by visitors in the local museum and art gallery.The map below shows the town of St Ives as it was in the middle of the last century.
