St. Ives, St. Eia. So good they named it in two languages!

Welcome to Spooky St. Ives, a website written by a resident, which will (hopefully) give you a little insight into the real St. Ives down in deepest, darkest Cornwall. Inside you will find some nuggets of information but really this is just intended to be a bit of a light-hearted look at the town everyone wants to visit (usually all at the same time).

The current menu of offerings is below and can I recommend the Margaux to go with it. Bon appetit!

Is There Anybody Out There?

This site has been visited on purpose by my mother and by accident by:-


Look, this is just supposed to be a bit of fun, right. If there's anything you object to in the content then e-mail me (there is a link on the Personal Inflammation page). If you've got a fair point I'll sort things out.

All views expressed on these pages are mine (unless you are the authorities in which case they are the Reporting Team's, I'm just the patsy, guv!).

Links to other websites are provided merely to make it look like I know what I'm doing. Their presence in no way implies that they agree with some or, in deed, any of my mental meanderings.


My grateful thanks to a few individuals who have given me a spot of very useful assistance in getting things right. I don't mention them by name because they would be the last to want any personal credit for what they have done. Needless to say that, ipso facto, they are true men (and women) of St. Ives.
