St Buryan (Eglosborrie) is a parish in the far west of Cornwall encompassing the villages of St Buryan, Lamorna and Crows-an-Wra. It shares its boundaries with the parishes of Sancreed, Paul, St Levan, Sennen and St Just with the sea to the south.
Parts of the parish are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty and an area of great landscape value. The centre of St Buryan village has been designated a conservation area since 1990. The parish is dotted with evidence of Neolithic activity from stone circles and Celtic crosses to burial chambers and ancient holy wells. The village of St Buryan itself is also a site of special historic interest and contains many listed buildings including the famous grade I listed church. The bells of St Buryan Church are the heaviest full circle peal of six anywhere in the world. The parish also has a strong cultural heritage.
Many painters of the Newlyn School including Samuel John "Lamorna" Birch were based at Lamorna in the south of the parish. St Buryan Village Hall was also the former location of Pipers Folk Club, created in the late 1960s by celebrated Cornish singer Brenda Wootton.
St Buryan Parish Council meets in St Buryan Village Hall, at 7.30pm, usually on the third Monday of the month. Members of the public are always welcome at these meetings.
