Blisland village, Cornwall

Blisland lies just over five miles northeast of Bodmin on the northwestern fringes of Bodmin Moor. Colliford Lake lies about seven miles east of the village and offers several leisure activities for locals and visitors alike.

Formerly known as Bluston and Bliston, the village appears in the Domesday Book as Glustone, an ancient manor formerly in the possession of Harold Godwinson - King Harold of 1066 fame.

Blisland Feast Day is held on the first Sunday following the 22nd of September and is dedicated to the Saints St. Hyacinth and St. Protus (now anglicised to St. Pratt). The church although nothing to look at from the outside has a wonderful colourful interior and is a 'must see'.

The Blisland Inn has, over the years, won many awards from CAMRA - the Campaign for Real Ale in Cornwall, and is also well worth visiting if in the area.
