Scorrier is a village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is about 2 miles northeast of the centre of Redruth and 3 miles south-east of the coast at Porthtowan, on the A30 road at the junction of the A3047 road that leads west to Camborne and the B3298 road south to Carharrack. The Plymouth to Penzance railway line passes through the village and between 1852 and 1964 it had its own station. A. E. Rodda & Son, the principal maker of clotted cream is based here.
Assa Govranckowe 1580, Kyver Ankou c. 1720, is a place on the Penwith – Kerrier border near Scorrier which is derived from keverango (meaning "hundreds"). Here the four western hundreds of Cornwall meet at a single point (Penwith, northwest; Kerrier, southwest; Powder, southeast; Pydar, northeast).
