Trevalga (Cornish: Trevelgi) St Petroc is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cornwall.The village church is also the parish church and is dedicated to St Petroc. Also in the parish is Trehane Barton (in its present form a farmhouse dating from 1743). The church was built in the 12th and 13th centuries (the tower being later than the nave and chancel). After restoration work the church was reopened in 1875. It is a member of the Boscastle with Davidstow United Benefice in the Diocese of Truro.<br>

=== Parish History  ===
  
Unusually, the village is owned by the estate of Marlborough College, a public school in Wiltshire. The&nbsp;village was bequethed to the college in 1961 by the last Lord of Trevalga Manor, Gerald Curgenven. This was to ensure it's preservation from development and allow local families to remain inhabiting the hamlet. However, in 2010, the college was told that it was breaking charity law by owning a hamlet, and thereafter placed the entire estate on the market. This sparked worry amongst the tenants, and other inhabitants, to the future of the hamlet. Thereafter, protests and petitions were set up, using the social networking website Facebook in an attempt to save the hamlet. There was formerly a slate quarry and a silver lead mine in the parish.<br>
