Little Bosullow is a hamlet in the civil parish of Madron, Cornwall, England, UK.[1][2] Great Bosullow is to the west, Bosullow is on the B3312 Madron to Morvah road and Bosullow Common is to the north.


The Bosullow Wesleyan Methodists Chapel at Little Bosullow was renovated at the end of 1878 and reopened on 12 January 1879.[3]

The property consisted of a dwelling-house, outbuildings, 42 acres (17 ha) of arable and pasture land, 58 acres (23 ha) of enclosed crofts and the rights of common over 107 acres (43 ha).[4]
