Stoke Climsland Church.

Stoke Climsland is a village in the valley of the River Tamar, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom within the civil parish of Stokeclimsland. The manor of Climsland was one of the seventeen Antiqua maneria of the Duchy of Cornwall.

Notable buildings[edit]

The present church building is 15th century, with north and south aisles and a west tower. The tower is of granite and the wagon roofs are medieval. At Horse Bridge on the road to Tavistock is a fine bridge of seven arches (built in 1437). At Whiteford Sir John Call built a Georgian mansion in 1775 but it no longer exists: the stables and a garden temple remain and a few fragments have been reused in a house nearby.[1]

The post office, opened in 1839, is the oldest in the UK. [2]

Notable residents[edit]

Sport[edit]

The village is also home to a football team, Stoke Climsland FC, which plays in the Cornwall Duchy league.[citation needed]
