St Helen's Oratory, Cornwall


  • Located in St. Just, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • We include St Helen's Oratory as a point of reference. When researching the area, we followed others across the field to explore the monument. We now understand that it stands on private property. Only view the building from afar
  • Stand by the chimney on the top of Cape Cornwall looking east and you'll see a small, ruined building in the field below. The Ordnance Survey Explorer 102 'Land's End' map marks this as 'St Helen's Chapel (remains of)'. It is thought that this old farm building was built on the site of a chapel. Accordingly, a sign reads: 'ST. HELEN'S ORATORY IS PROTECTED AS A MONUMENT OF NATIONAL IMPORTANCE UNDER THE ANCIENT MONUMENTS ACTS 1913-1953. DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT'
  • Other points of interest on the View from The Monument connected with Cornish saints include:
  • St Levan's Holy Well
  • St Levan's Stone
  • Sancreed Chapel and Holy Well
  • St Euny's Chapel and Holy Well
