St Agnes (Cornish: Breanek) is a small town on the north coast of Cornwall, England. Its coastal area is a part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).


The village of St Agnes was a prehistoric and modern centre for mining of copper, tin and arsenic until the 1920s. Much of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, a World Heritage Site, is in the parish. Tin production is still worked at the Blue Hills Tin Streams.
