Harrowbarrow (Cornish: Kelliskovarnek[1]) is a village in the parish of Calstock in east Cornwall, England.[2][3]


The Harrowbarrrow Panther[edit]

In April 2019 it was claimed that a big cat was sighted in the village after it attacked a dog. Residents claimed that five local pet cats had disappeared and that a local herd of deer was no longer visiting the fields near the village. A large paw print, identified as that of a panther or puma by the RSPCA was also found.[4]

All Saints, Harrowbarrow[edit]

In 1870 a parishioner presented the Rector with a piece of land, near the Prince of Wales Mine, and the church was designed by Mr J Piers St Aubyn and was built as a school and a mission chapel for £700. The church seats up to eighty worshippers.
