ABOUT ROCHE METHODIST CHURCH

The granite outcrop of Roche Rock is only a short walk from the main road and rises to a height of about 60 feet. Built into the rock, and seeming to grow from it, are the remains of a 14th century chapel and hermit’s cell dedicated to St Michael. One legend suggest that this may have been the site of Ogrin’s chapel where the lovers Tristan and Isolde, having escaped from King Mark found temporary refuge. Another story tells that it was St Gundred, a holy and virtuous lady lived there and tended to her sick father’s needs, for he was a leper. Though there are no other references to St Gundred. You will find a sincere welcome from the people of Roche if you come and worship. Wesleyan Methodist church built in 1835, schoolroom of 1874. The 1877 alterations carried out by John Paul of St Austell under the supervision of Mr Silvanus Trevail included the minister’s room to the rear of the chapel. Grade 11 listed in 1987.
