St Juliot Parish

St Juliot in an isolated position on the northern slopes of the Valency Valley. The church is snugly tucked away below the road, and for those with the time to do it, the walk along through the woods from Boscastle is perhaps the best way to find this magical spot which has become indelibly associated with Thomas Hardy, the novelist and architect: readers of "A Pair of Blue Eyes" will rapidly recognise church and place. The churchyard is at its very best in the early spring, when snowdrops drift the banks, but at any time of the year the setting is timeless.
