Warleggan is a parish and village, on the Temple stream, 5 miles north-east from Bodmin Road station on the Great Western railway and 6 easy-by-north from Bodmin, in the Bodmin division of the county, hundred and petty sessional division of West, rural district of Liskeard, county court district, rural deanery and archdeaconry of Bodmin and diocese of Truro. The church of St. Bartholomew is an ancient building of stone, in the Perpendicular style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and a western tower containing one bell: there are 150 sittings. The register dates from the year 1540. The living is a rectory, net yearly value £300, including 22 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Diocesan Board of Patronage, and held since 1931 by the Rev. Frederick William Densham, of St Stephen’s House, Oxford, and B.A. of London University. There are two Methodist chapels here. Lord Vivian D.S.O., T.D., D.L., J.P. who is lord of the manor, and C.R. Skynner esq. are the chief landowners. Warleggan is noted for its wonderful scenery. It slopes from the moors on the north from a height of 700 feet down to the richly wooded banks of the Fowey in the famous Glynn Valley on the south and is bounded on the east by the Warleggan river. The rivers are noted for the extraordinary runs of salmon peel in the summer. The soil is peat and clayey loam; the subsoil is part granite and part clay-slate. The chief crops are barley and oats, and some wheat. The area is 2,157 acres of land and 6 of water; population in 1931, 168.
