Stithians is a village and parish in a beautiful rural location between Redruth, Helston, Falmouth and the city of Truro.
The name is believed to derive from the dedication of the parish church to St Stithians, of whom little is known.
The parish contains a large number and variety of archaeological remains from standing stones, rounds, stone crosses and a holy well to the industrial heritage of the gunpowder mills of the Kennal Vale.
Close to the village is Stithians Reservoir, the reserve is a popular bird watching area.
Stithians Dam was completed in 1964 to create a 270-acre (1.1 km2) reservoir to the west of the village, which supplies water to a large part of the west of Cornwall. It is a place for bird-watching, fishing and water sports. Stithians has a rugby football club (founded in 1890) and a football club running two teams in the Trelawney League.
Music has always played a large part in village life. St Stythians Band (formerly St Stythians Silver Band) was founded in 1928 and became very successful in competitions in the 1960s and 1970s; during the summer months it gives weekly concerts at the Gyllyngdune Gardens in Falmouth. St Stythians Male Voice Choir was formed in 1919, only to be closed in 1926; but it was reformed in 1947 and since then has thrived, performing concerts throughout Cornwall and further afield. Stithians Ladies Choir was formed in 1966 and quickly established a high reputation. The band and choirs have made a number of successful recordings.
Stithians is famous for its Agricultural Show which takes place every July on the local Feast Day. Stithians Show is one of the largest one-day agricultural shows in the UK: the show is held annually in July and the attendance is in excess of 20,000. Established in 1834, it has been held continuously since then (except for three years during World War I, and five years during World War II; and there was no show in 2001 due to the nationwide outbreak of foot and mouth disease). Up until 1992, the Show was sited on fields in the centre of the village. Then the threat of rental increases as well as the show's increasing size encouraged the Agricultural Association to purchase its own land at Kennall Farm and establish a site there.
Stithians is a lovely, community orientated village, providing a wealth of day to day facilities including general store, public house and a well regard primary school. Bus facilities serve the local towns and rail links to provide access to the City of Truro and national rail network.
The city of Truro is the retail and commercial centre of Cornwall, with the famous Cathedral lying at its heart. The city offers a unique mix of independent shops and multiples as well as an excellent collection of art galleries, bars, restaurants, night clubs, cinema, The Hall for Cornwall and the Royal Cornwall Museum. The city is steeped in history and features many wonderful Georgian terraced streets which are rivalled only in the west by Bath. There are also a number of fine municipal gardens including Boscawen Park and Victoria Gardens, which have in the past won many awards in the Britain In Bloom competition.
Falmouth has long been regarded as one of the most desirable coastal towns to live within the whole of the UK, and boasts a rich maritime history, including the Packet Ships, and is the start and finish of many sea voyages including the famous Tall Ships Race. The town has an eclectic collection of high street and individual shops nestled between cafes, restaurants and galleries.
