Contents

Parish History


Ruan Lanihorne St Rumon is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cornwall. Other places in the parish include: Highlanes, Tregiswin, and Treworgy.

The name Lanihorne is perhaps a modified form of Laryhorn (the Cornish name of this place). The village was in mediaeval times the site of a castle of the Lercedekne family and the main settlement was at Sheepstor (Sheepstall) some distance away towards Tregony.

The church was dedicated to St Rumonus (or Rumon) in 1321 and has a chancel and nave, a north aisle, and a south transept. The single-stage tower houses a ring of two bells.
