Extracts from Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870-
The parish of St. Teath lies between the Atlantic Ocean and Bodmin Moor (west of the A39 between Camelford and Wadebridge) and covers an area of almost 6000 acres.
The Parish Church is dedicated to St.Tetha and dates from about 1380. A Norman church, built about 1100, previously stood on the site and remains of this include the lower stage of the tower and the old font on the floor inside the North Door. A large Celtic cross stands in the cemetery and the fact that the church land is in the shape of a rough circle indicates that there was probably some kind of place of worship here in Celtic times.
St. Tetha’s Church served the whole parish until the Church of Saint John the Evangelist was built at Delabole in 1879. The first baptism recorded there was on 7 August 1881. It has a unique slate altar built from Delabole slate.
