St Julitta’s, Lanteglos-by-Camelford was built at a time when the nearby hamlet of Helstone was a royal manor and hunting grounds and the major settlement of the area. It lies in a stunning setting – a lovely peaceful valley with a churchyard that is kept as a wild flower meadow that is particularly attractive in the spring and summer months.
St. Julitta’s is the ancient Parish Church of Camelford and is very important to the people of the town as the place where family events such as weddings and baptisms are celebrated and where family members are ultimately laid to rest. The small regular congregation are boosted at festival times and special services such as Remembrance Sunday when 200+ may attend.
St Julitta, Lanteglos is now open again following a major renovation – there is more to do but do come and see how beautiful it is looking.
