Parish History

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
