About St. Agnes
St Agnes (Cornish: Breanek) is a civil parish and a large village on the north coast of Cornwall and was a prehistoric and modern centre for the mining of copper and tin. This industry sadly died out around the 1920s. Other local industries have included farming and fishing, and more recently tourism. The town has an excellent museum full of fascinating artifacts and information about the town. The district has a heritage of industrial archaeology and there are remains in the parish from the stone-age. St Agnes Beacon takes a dominant position over the town and during the Napoleonic Wars a guard was stationed on the hill to look out for French ships and light a warning fire if any were seen. Nowadays lightings of the St. Agnes Beacon are confined to events such as jubilees of the reigning monarch and was recently lit during the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
