St Endellion ( ) is a civil parish in north Cornwallmarker, Englandmarker, in the United Kingdommarker. It takes its name from Saint Endelienta, who is said to have evangelized the district in the fifth century and to have been one of the children of Brychan. Two wells near the village are named after her.

Parish Church of St Endelienta

St Endellion Church
The parish church of St Endelienta is close to the main road to Wadebridge and is a large building of the 15th century in Perpendicular style. It contains some fine examples of carving in stone and wood. From an unknown date in the 13th century it has been a collegiate church with four prebends. It somehow escaped abolition in 1545 and continues to the present day. (One of the prebendaries is the Rector and the others usually incumbents of nearby parishes.) A new ecclesiastical parish at Port Isaacmarker was created out of this parish in 1913.

Geography and topography

St Endellion is a climate-friendly parish . It is the Type Locality for the minerals Bournonite (also known as Endellione or Endellionite) and Barstowite.

The houses at Roscarrock and Tresungers are listed buildings: at Roscarrock part of the medieval house remains (it is Listed Grade I); Tresungers farmhouse was built in the late 16th century. The Roscarrock family included Nicholas Roscarrock (c.1548-1634) who left an interesting account of the lives of the saints including about 100 from Devon and Cornwall.

Music festivals are held at Easter and at the end of July: they have been held in the summer since 1959 and at Easter since 1974. Some of the musicians involved formed the Endellion Quartet.
