The Parish Church is named after St Tetha, one of twenty-four sons and daughters of Prince Brychan, a Welsh chieftain. When the Romans left Britain St Tetha and many of her brothers and sisters, including Endelienta, Mabena, Adwena, Minfreda, came to North Cornwall to convert people to Christianity. The church is located in the centre of the village of St Teath adjacent to the Clock Tower and in close proximity to the village inn.
