Parish Church of St Just, Church Street, St. Just - Cornwall (UA)

Large parish church in the centre of the most westerly town in England. Classic Cornish pattern church of three aisles and a tall west tower. C13 cruciform church re-modelled in the early C15 creating the outer aisles and tower. C19 restoration created the current roofs. All of granite ashlar with Cornish slate roofs. The slate roofs are failing and have caused the fall of ceiling plaster. Rainwater goods are rusted and failing. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship has been awarded and the project is in development.
