St Just in Roseland

A couple of miles north of St Mawes, St Just in Roseland is noted for its 13th Century Church set in gardens that tumble down to a pretty creek. Planted with semitropical shrubs and trees, many of which are species rare in England, Sir John Betjeman said it was  ‘to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth’,

The interior of the church has some interesting painted bosses and the granite blocks lining the path from the road are carved with a collection of Bible verses commissioned in the early 1900s.

The church is open during daylight hours.

In the season a small tea shop is open near to the Church.
