Lanreath, a parish in Liskeard district, Cornwall; on an affluent of the river Fowey, 5½ miles ESE of Lostwithiel r. station, and 7½ SW of Liskeard. It has a post-office under Liskeard; is a seat of petty sessions, held at Trecan-Gate; and has cattle fairs on the third week after Shrove-Tuesday, 2 May, and 18 November. Acres, 4,878. Real property, £3,693. Pop., 649. Houses, 123. The property is subdivided. The manor of Court Barton formerly belonged to the Grylls and others, but is now divided. A Roman causeway and an ancient camp are on Bury Down; and there are several barrows. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Exeter. Value, £502. Patron, John Buller, Esq. The church contains a carved screen and a Norman font, and is very good. There are chapels for Calvinists, Wesleyans, and Primitive Methodists, and a national school.
