About The Parish

About St.Minver Highlands

The Parish is bounded on the south and west by the estuary of the River Camel, on the north by the Atlantic coast, and on the east by the Parishes of St Endellion and St Kew.

The village of St Minver and its surrounding area is dominated by the tall spire of St Menefreda’s church (the parish church) named after Saint Menwreda (variously St Mynfreda or St Minefreda, the origin of the present day name St Minver) who was one of the 24 children of St Brychan, a Welsh king. In the church is the brass of Roger Opy, 1517

The principal villages in the Parish are St Minver, Rock, and Polzeath.
