Geography

St Juliot, (Cornish: Sen Julet), is situated in the deanery of Trigg Major and the Hundred of Lesnewth. The parish is located on the North Cornwall coast; it is bounded on the north by St Gennys, on the east by Otterham, on the south by Davidstow and Lesnewth, and on the west by Minster, Forrabury and the Bristol Channel. The Valency river runs westwards through a steep valley in this parish to emerge at Boscastle. The church, dedicated to St Julitta, was the meeting place of the writer Thomas Hardy and his first wife - Emma Gifford. The parish was the inspiration for Endelstow in 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'.
GENUKI
This makes St Juliot only half a dozen miles from Tintagel.
Warbstow is about two miles east of Otterham
