St. Just in Roseland

About St. Just in Roseland  |  Weather  |  Tide Times

Mainland's most westerly town, next to Cape Cornwall (NT). Iron Age village of Carn Euny, Geevor mining heritage centre at Pendeen, Levant Beam Engine (NT), Crown engine houses at Botallack, Pendeen lighthouse. Flights to Isles of Scilly and pleasure flights from Land's End aerodrome at St Just.

There is no doubt that this little hamlet in Roseland is a place of charm, of peace and tranquillity and of warmth. In the height of summer, of course it can become quite busy for such a small place, but most of the activity takes place on the shoreline where there are tidal beaches and anchorage for boats. Wandering along the coast toward St. Mawes or around the creek and churchyard, though, is highly recommended.

The Church here has been described as the most beautiful in England, but that may be more to do with its setting, than the actual building. The location on the waters edge and surrounded by subtropical plants, the whole tucked into a corner of a creek, is indeed extremely attractive. There is also a well in the churchyard, but I am informed that it is not the ancient 'Holy Well'; that one lies outside the lower lychgate beside the path and is actually pre-Christian in origin.
