West Penwith Rural District was a rural district in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom, from 1894 to 1974. It was enlarged in 1934 by the abolition of Hayle, Ludgvan, Madron, Paul, and Phillack urban districts, and also took in part of the disbanded Redruth Rural District.
From 1992 the name was used for the smallest Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) in England. The ESA designation covers 90 square kilometres (35 sq mi) in the area formerly covered by the rural district, but there is no relationship between the two.
