Roche village, Cornwall

Roche Village lies in Mid Cornwall just south of the A30 at Victoria and to the north of the main China Clay producing area of St. Austell.

The parish of Roche, (Cornish: An Garrek), is bounded on the north by St Wenn and Withiel, on the east by Lanivet and Luxulyan, on the south by St Austell and St Stephens-in-Brannel, and on the west by St Dennis and St Columb Major. It is named after the prominent granite tor, known as 'Roche Rock', upon the top of which, according to the legend, a hermit decided to build his cell. It was only accessible by ladders and there are many versions as to who was its occupant.
