About the Church

Luxulyan Parish Church is dedicated to Saint Julitta and her son Cyriacus. According to legend, they were persecuted and executed in gruesome fashion for being Christian in Tarsus (south-central Turkey) in AD304. It has been suggested that the church was founded by Saint Sulian - one of the party of Welsh missionary monks who accompanied St Sampson to Brittany in the sixth century. The name Luxulyan is thought to have been derived from Saint Sulian’s name. The unusual little tower at the top of the main church tower was supposedly the place where the Blackmoor Stannary Tin Court, kept its records.
