Geocache Description:

Part of the 'Sidetracked' series.

This cache is a Nano - please replace as found.

A little stealth will be required during busy times.


The station was opened by the West Cornwall Railway on 11 March 1852. At this time it was known as St Ives Road and was the railhead for that town, which lies about 4 miles (6.4 km) to the north. This was an important harbour with a busy fishing trade and tin and copper mines; the new railway brought it artists and then tourists. The station was a simple single platform situated on the north side of the line.

On 1 June 1877 a branch line was opened from here to St Ives, which was when the station was renamed 'St Erth'; a few years later the station building was reconstructed in granite. A second track was laid on the north side of the platform for the opening of the branch, but the main line still had only the one track. This was partly rectified in about 1894 when a loop line with its own platform was opened, but the line was only doubled eastwards to Hayle on 10 September 1899, and westwards to Marazion on 16 June 1929.

Beyond the St Ives branch platform was the station goods yard and sidings which served a china clay dry for a few years. It then served milk trains from the Primrose Dairy creamery, later operated by United Dairies, although these were taken out of use in 1982.
