Church and Gardens

Described by John Betjeman as ‘to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth’, the gardens of St Just in Roseland have delighted many, many people over many years. Explore the winding paths through the bamboos, follow the running stream down to the creek and pause by our Holy Well. Beautiful views lead the eye over to the boatyard or back towards the church. Step away from all the noise and traffic and rest in the tranquillity of our historic church.

The Churchyard at St Just is open daily and the Churches of St Just and St Mawes are open for private prayer between 10.00am and 4.00pm on a Monday and Thursday.

Services are available on line via Zoom at 4pm every Sunday.  Please contact Emma Р or call her on 01326 722618 for further details.


There are many circular paths through our churchyard and each path leads either to the lychgates, the church or the creek. You can’t get lost, but you may want to look out for some special sights, please click below for our ‘What to look for’ information
