St Julitta


St Julitta's is a Grade I Listed medieval Cornish church in the Parish of Lanteglos by Camelford. Parts of the building date back to Norman times. Rare 15th century stained glass survives today. The font, also 15th century, and the east window share an unusual early symbol of the universe. One of the first circumnavigators of the world, Samuel Wallis, was baptised in the font and his family dating from the 16th century is commemorated in a memorial stone.

The project will rescue the church, an important community resource which is under threat from structural deterioration. At present damp is everywhere. The roof will be renewed with as many recovered slates as possible, structural repairs will take place to walls and to the tower, re pointing with lime mortar, and rotten timbers will be replaced. The materials will either be reused, or replacements will be matched as near as possible to the original.
