St Neot Parish Church

Contents

Parish History

The parish is named after the Saxon monk, Saint Neot (who also gives his name to  St Neots, Huntingdonshire, whence his alleged bones were taken in the early Middle Ages). On the northern side the parish includes part of Bodmin Moor and hamlets in the parish include Draynes, Ley and Pantersbridge.

The original dedication may have been to 'St Anietus', with whom the Saxon Neot has been confused. In the 11th century a small monastery existed here; the early medieval church building (of which the tower remains) must have been smaller than the one in existence today. Rebuilding in granite was undertaken in the 15th century and the fine stained glass windows are from about 1500. The stained glass is partly original and partly from a restoration done by John Hedgeland, circa1830
