Pillaton village, Cornwall

Pillaton lies in Southeast Cornwall, just about a mile south of St. Mellion and six and a half miles northwest of Saltash.

The name Pillaton means 'farmstead of stakes, posts'. It is an attractive village overlooking Lynher valley on the south-east border of Cornwall with Devon. The Weary Friar Hotel was originally believed to have been a resting place for monks building the church.

The parish of Pillaton, (Cornish: Trebeulyow), is bounded on the north by St Mellion and St Dominick, on the east by the River Tamar and Landulph, on the south by Botus Fleming and the detached part of St Stephens-by-Saltash, and on the west by Quethiock. The manor of Pillaton is the Piletone or Pilatona of the Domesday Survey of 1086.
