St Just in Roseland Church
St Just in Roseland Church in Cornwall.
The site was originally a 15th century chapel the Church gardens stretch down the hillside to the river. It is claimed that Joseph of Arimithea landed here when making his way to Glastonbury. The present church was dedicated to St Just on 14th August 1261, by Walter, Bishop of Exeter. The parish registers date from 1538.
A previous vicar who was clearly an enthusiastic plants man encouraged and cultivated many tropical plants. The results of his endeavours can clearly be seen around the church today.
Walking down the path to the Church you will see granite blocks on which quotations and verses are carved.
The church has three bells, the oldest bell installed in 1684,
