Roche

The parish of Roche (pronounced Roach – and indeed spelt as such in many of the early Registers) lies in mid Cornwall, about 6 miles north of St Austell. It stands at approximately 1,000 feet above sea level, on the northern side of the Hensbarrow granite massif (much of which is dedicated to the china clay industry). To the north are the parishes of St Wenn and Withiel, to the east Lanivet and Luxulyan, to the south St Stephen in Brannel and Treverbyn and to the west St Dennis and St Columb Major.

The parish and village of the same name (Cornish: An Garrek or Tregarrek – homestead of the rock) derive their name from the granite/tourmaline outcrop standing on the ancient manor of Tregarrick, known as Roche Rock, on top of which is poised a chapel dedicated (as are so many places of worship on high places) to St Michael, and a cell or hermitage.

Extending to about 6,500 acres, much of the parish is given over to agriculture, although, from quite early times Goss Moor, on the north-west side of the parish, was extensively streamed for tin. Then, in the 18th century, following William Cookworthy’s discovery of high grade china clay deposits in neighbouring St Stephen in Brannel, china clay and china stone were also discovered and worked in Roche, giving rise to the brickworks at Carbis.

In addition to the village of Roche – growing from the original Churchtown – the parish is also home to the hamlets of Belowda (or Belovely as is it called by many locals), Carbis, Coldvreath, Tregoss, Tremodrett and Trezaise.
