Warleggan Church

Warleggan (Cornish: Gorlegan) is a civil parish on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.

The parish is roughly oblong in shape with hamlets near the church and at Mount. The River Warleggan, a tributary of the River Fowey, runs through the parish, forming its western boundary in places. The population was 203 in the 2001 census, increasing to 208 at the 2011 census[1]

Parish church[edit]

The parish church (dedicated to St Bartholomew) is partly Norman and partly 15th century in date. It formerly had a spire but this fell down in 1818 and was not rebuilt.[2] From 1931 until his death the Rev F. W. Densham was Rector of Warleggan: he was unworldly and eccentric.[3] There is also a Methodist chapel in the parish.

Cabilla Manor Wood[edit]

Cabilla Manor Wood, in the west of the civil parish, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) noted for its biological interest.[4] The SSSI surrounds the River Warleggan, extending into Cardinham civil parish.
