Just the other side of a sea wall lies the Church of St Ia, the parish church of St Ives, in Cornwall. St Ia was supposedly an Irish holy woman of the 5th or 6th Century. The church was built in the 1400s, during the reign of Henry V, as a chapel of ease in the parish of Lelant. The tower stands at over 80 feet high and is made of Zennor granite, which was brought to the site by sea.
