Welcome to Stoke Climsland
Stoke Climsland is the name of both the main village and the Parish situated on the eastern border of Cornwall. Bounded on the east by the River Tamar, which is the border between Cornwall and Devon and to the north by the River Inny, it is part of both the Tamar Valley AONB and the World Heritage Site for Cornish Mining, which encompasses the southern area.
Stoke Climsland (Kernewek name Eglosstock, Eglos meaning Church) translates as ‘Stoke’ meaning ‘outlying farm’; and Climsland being the name of the manor. Much of the area has always belonged to the Duchy of Cornwall and the thriving Duchy College sits on what was once Home Farm.
As well as Stoke and Luckett villages, the parish contains many hamlets, including Beals Mill, Venterdon, Downgate, Tutwell, Lidwell, Pempwell, Goosewell and part of Bray Shop,
The Council meets on the third Monday of each month in the Parish Hall, although it does sometimes hold meetings in other parts of the parish.
