Philleigh village, Cornwall

The village of Philleigh lies about seven and a half miles southeast of Truro on the Roseland Peninsula.

Situated on the east of the River Fal, Philleigh may be considered by some a little remote. Due to the nature of the river creeks and inlets, a trip to Truro by road is fifteen miles. Canny folk however would head west to cross the river by the King Harry Ferry, cutting the distance by more than half.

The parish of Philleigh, (Cornish: Eglosros), or Filly was anciently called Eglos Ross or Heath Church; it is named after St. Fily, a saint about whom little is known. On the east, it is bounded by Ruan Lanihorne and Veryan and on the south by Gerrans and St Just-in-Roseland. Philleigh was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, formerly held by 'Earl Harold'. The 16th century Roseland Inn is well worth a visit and has a reputation for serving good food.
