A NEW BOOKLET ABOUT THE HISTORY OF LUDGVAN AND ITS ANCIENT CHURCH
Ludgvan. Aspects of a Cornish village will appeal to everybody who has an interest in Cornwall and its sometimes stormy past.
The booklet looks at less well known aspects of the village, like: the settlement’s name; why the church silver disappeared in the 1550s; what happened when the Roundheads occupied the parish in the 1640s and the significance of the mysterious and ancient inscribed stone found in a house in the village. The booklet’s author, Michael Leach, is a local resident and a member of the Cornwall Association of Local Historians.
In full colour with 28 illustrations, this A5 booklet is available from the Ludgvan Parish Office, Murley Hall, Ludgvan. TR21 8EY price £6.00, including postage. Cheques payable to Ludgvan Parish Church. Tel. 01736 741067 (Tues-Fri, 10 am – 12 noon)
Welcome to the parish church of St. Paul, Ludgvan in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and county of Cornwall England. One of four parish churches in the United Benefice of Mounts Bay. Normally, services are on Thursdays 10am Morning Prayer & (from 18 March) 10.30am Holy Communion.
There is evidence that there was a place of worship on this site as early as the seventh century. The original church was dedicated to St. Ludewon or Ludvon but nothing remains of this building except the font, which is Norman. During the fourteenth century the chancel was rebuilt and on 14 July 1336 the church was re-dedicated to St. Paul.
Our Address at St. Paul’s Ludgvan is: Churchtown, Ludgvan, Cornwall, TR20 8EY.
The Murley Hall across the road from the church is not so much a church hall more a parish hall. The entrance to the hall is opposite the “White Hart” pub in Ludgvan Churchtown and leads to 8 off-road parking spaces. The hall is equipped with a projection screen, tables and chairs to accommodate 70 theatre style or 50 at tables, and free wi-fi. There is a small meeting room for 10 people and a large well equipped kitchen. Double doors open onto a grassed area. The building is disabled-friendly throughout and is available for hire at very reasonable rates.
