The first Anglo-Saxon settlers are believed to have arrived in the 5th or 6th century where they names their settlement Slepe - meaning muddy. The original Anglo-Saxon settlement was at the west end of the modern town we know today. The present parish church of All Saints which is just a short distance from us was rebuilt in the 15th century which some say is on the site of an old Anglo-Saxon church. During the 17th & 18th centuries St Ives became an key waterway route.
