St Issey, is located about 2.5 miles south of Padstow and approximately 5 miles north of St Columb, and covers an area of approximately 4500 acres, the ecclesiastical parish of St Petrocs Minor or Little Petherick has it is known, was added to St Issey parish and thus increased the acreage by a further 1215. The main hamlets of this parish, with the exception of Churchtown, are Trenance, Tredinnick and Trevance.  There are several manor houses in this area including the 1814 ruins at the site of Barton, which includes a manor house and chapel. Tregenna Manor once belonged to the Arundells.  In 1867, the Vicar of St Issey church achieved is ambition of educating the children of the parish by pushing to have a school constructed.

St Issey Parish Church

The school at St Issey was built in 1867 / 8 with the help of the local farmers, who gave there services to bring the stone from Tredinnick quarry. In 1966 and again in 1978 the school underwent modernisation. In 1980 St Issey parish church underwent a 200'000 restoration and thus is a beautifully restored Grade 1 listed building that is so worth a visit.

Below is an image of the stunning pipes above the church organ.

 The church is dedicated to St Issey or Itha or Ida, the Virgin of Abbess, who was born in Ireland in A.D. 480  St Issey died in A.D. 569 but there is still a feast held on the Sunday nearest the 20th in the month of November.

The centre of Churchtown

There are several public footpaths from the village. One leads down to the Camel Trail, a 27 mile trail for walkers and cyclists that follows a disused railway line from Padstow, through Wadebridge and Bodmin, to Dunmere and Poley's Bridge. Padstow is a peaceful 45 minute walk from the pub and Wadebridge is a couple of hours away on foot. It's  obviously a lot quicker on a bicycle!
