Parish History

CLEMENT'S (ST.), a parish, in the union of Truro, W. division of the hundred of Powder and of the county of Cornwall. [1]


St Clether St Clederus is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cornwall. Other places in the parish include: Coldnorthcott.

The original Norman church of St Clederus was, apart from the tower, rebuilt in 1865. The tower is built of granite and is of late medieval date; the font is Norman and very plain.

West of St Clether parish church is a holy well and associated chapel, said to be one of Cornwall's best preserved. The church and holy well are dedicated to Saint Cleder (or Clederus), one of the twenty-four children of Saint Brychan, a Welsh saint and King of Brycheiniog in the 5th century.

Langdon (1896) records five stone crosses in the parish of which four are at the old manor house of Basill Barton.
