Saint Julitta or Juliot Virgin

Date of repose unknown No memorial date known

The hamlet of St Juliot named after another otherwise unknown saint St Julitta lies in a remote place not far from Tintagel. Three ancient boundary crosses are still in place on the circular enclosure on which the church was built.

Everybody has heard of Tintagel. This is another very dramatic spot, a rocky headland almost cut off by the sea. It was once thought to be the earliest monastery in Britain; but it is more likely an off-shore trading post in Roman and post Roman times. But it does have 3 holy wells, one (and a 12C chapel) dedicated to St Julitta.
