St Just in Roseland ( ) civil parish and village in Cornwallmarker, Englandmarker, in the United Kingdommarker: it is known for its picturesque churchyard.

St Just in Roseland should not be confused with the larger settlement of St Just in Penwithmarker which is situated in the extreme west of Cornwall.

Located just north of St. Mawesmarker, St. Just in Roseland is famous for its picturesque 13th century church, set in magnificent riverside gardens luxuriantly planted with semitropical shrubs and trees, many of which are species rare in England. The church perches on the edge of the tidal creek of the Percuil River, with numerous paths leading from the churchyard onto the coastal footpath which continues around the headland, through some National Trust lands to St Mawes. This is a walk of approximately two miles.

Churchyard of St Just
The church is situated just outside the main village, with a small side road, taking the visitor down the hillside toward the church gates. There is a small carpark and limited parking along the side of the road by the church gate.

The path from the road to the Church is lined with granite blocks carved with quotations and verses taken from the Bible. Because the slope is so steep, as visitors stand at the lych-gate on the road, looking down to the Church, they will find themselves looking down on the church tower.

Notable people

The ornithologist Edward Hearle Rodd was born here. The cricketer Michael Harris (known as "Pasty" Harris) also came from the parish.
