About Blisland  |  Weather

Blisland is situated in the Hundred of Trigg, and in the deanery of Trigg-Minor; It is surrounded by St Breward on the north, Altarnun, St Neot and Temple on the east, Cardinham and Helland on the south, and St Mabyn on the west. The parish is named after an unknown personal name plus 'tun' which means land. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Glustone, here the B has changed to a G. The village lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor about 3 miles North East of the town of Bodmin. It is a hilly area with numerous isolated farms and small unfenced moorland roads. It is primarily farmland and cattle and sheep are grazed on the moorland. In 1934, the parish of Temple was incorporated into Blisland parish.
