Poundstock is where you will find the parish church of St Winwaloc and the 14th Century medieval Guild house which stands close by. The Guild house is the only surviving one of its kind in Cornwall. Poundstock is a Saxon name meaning 'cattle enclosure', and the cattle enclosure, or pound, was a feature of the village for many centuries.

The Guildhouse

A fair was held at Poundstock on Rogation Monday, and the revel or Dedication Festival is still observed today on the Monday before Ascension Day. In 1086 Poundstock was recorded as Pondestock in the Domesday Book .

A church has stood here for 14 centuries.
