About St. Blazey
St Blazey (Cornish: Lanndreth) is a small town in Cornwall. It lies within the parish of St Blaise and the name St Blaise is also used by the town council. The hamlets of Biscovey, St. Blazey Gate, Bodelva and West Par all lie within the parish boundaries. St Blazey was once an important engineering centre for the local mining and railway industries, but the area is now dominated by the Eden Project which lies about 1 mile from the village. The town takes is name from the Armenian St. Blaise and holds a procession and service on his feast day, 3 February.
An Iron Age hillfort, Prideaux Castle lies a mile to the north west of the town in the parish of Luxulyan.
The church was built between 1440 and 1445 and is dedicated to Saint Blaise. It replaces an earlier church mentioned in 1294. The site was originally known by the Cornish names Landrait or Landreath, meaning Church on the Sand.
The town was once dominated by the local mining industries and their associated transport infrastructure. Historically copper and tin were mined in and around the parish, whilst more recently china clay has been the principal commodity mined.
