Landrake with St Erney Parish is a small parish in south east Cornwall. The Parish lies about 3.5 miles (5km) west of Saltash and the river Tamar, and is bisected east - west by the A38 trunk road. Apart from Landrake village, which is the main population centre, the Parish is mainly agricultural and woodland, with small hamlets and farmsteads linked by narrow cornish lanes. The Parish covers almost 3600 acres (1450 hectares), and has a population of about 1000.
Landrake Parish lies on high ground between the deep and partly tidal valleys of the rivers Lynher and Tiddy, which come together at the southernmost tip of the Parish, where the main railway line from Plymouth to Penzance crosses both rivers on a high viaduct
