St Just & St Mawes Heritage Group

Our mission is to collect, record and and display the rich history of the parish of St Just and St Mawes, a beautiful parish situated at the end of The Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall. We wish to make the information available to all ages and nationalities, to both young and old, locals and visitors.

To this end we produce an annual exhibition which appears in our two telephone boxes. Each exhibition is accompanied by a leaflet describing a walk around the villages to see the places mentioned in the exhibition.

We have monthly talks on different historical subjects. These are open to our members and to the many visitors and holiday makers to the area.

In addition, we have a huge collection of photos and a very successful facebook page where new pictures are constantly appearing. Perhaps you have one to contribute. These attract responses and discussions.

You can find out more about our history in this web site. If you want specific information about people and places in the parish you can “contact us”. If you like what we are doing and wish to support us you can “become a member” or make a donation.

How you can help us

All photographs and memories posted here are for your enjoyment. However, if you find a discrepancy in any of the details on this site, please do let us know. In the meantime, take a walk along old streets, view old buildings and maybe even discover some familiar faces. And if you have some historical photos yourself that you’d be willing to share, then email us with them and we’ll be glad to post them for everyone’s benefit.
Alternatively, maybe you have a recollection or memory you’d like to share about St Mawes or St Just in bygone times? Or you remember an old story that you recall hearing? If so, we’d be glad to include that in our ‘memories’ section. But for now, just relax and enjoy the ride down memory lane...
