St Neot, Cornwall

St Neot, Cornwall

St Neot (pronEng|ˈsɪnt ˈniːʊt) is a village in Cornwall,United Kingdom, situated between the towns of Bodmin and Liskeard. The village is named after the Saxon monk, Saint Neot (who also gives his name to St Neots in Cambridgeshire, whence his alleged bones were taken in the early Middle Ages).

No railway was ever built to the village, despite pressure from local people and mine owners in the 1860s and 1870s. Instead, Doublebois railway station was opened on 1 June 1860 about two miles south of St Neot on the Cornwall Railway main line.

In 2004, the village of St Neot won the Calor Village of the Year award. Following up on the 2004 award, St. Neot has recently won the Calor Gas Village of the Decade Competition, which celebrated 10 years of the competition

The nearby Carnglaze Caverns, a former slate quarry, form an unusual music venue.
