  About your Area
 

Luxulyan (pronounced [l?k's?lj?n]) (also spelled Luxullian, Luxulian) is a village and civil parish (2001 population 1,371) in the borough of Restormel, central Cornwall, United Kingdom. Luxulyan railway station is one of the stations on the Atlantic Coast Line.

Luxulyan is best known for the Luxulyan Valley, a steep sided and thickly wooded stretch of the valley of the River Par that contains a major concentration of early 19th century industrial remains. The valley was designated a World Heritage Site in 2006. The place has given its name to luxulyanite, a rare type of Cornish granite.

The village of Luxulyan lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Other villages in the parish include the Churchtown, Bridges, Treskilling, Rosemelling, Higher Manedue, and Bedwith.

[edit] History

St. Sulien or Sulian was abbot here during the sixth century. The church in the village may have been dedicated to him originally, but it is now dedicated to Saints Ciricius (Cyr, Cyriacus, Quiricus) and Julitta.

There are roads in Luxulyan named after all three saints. Sulien is a Welsh variant of the given name "Julian," but has also been interpreted as being derived from the Welsh sul, meaning "sun" + geni, meaning "born," Sulien being the name of a Celtic solar deity.

Located in the southern portion of the parish near the border with St Blazey are the remains of the Iron-Age hillfort known as Prideaux Castle.

[edit] Commerce

There has been a burgeoning of tourist accommodations in the vicinity since the building of the Eden Project.

[edit] Transport

As well as the railway to Newquay & Par a regular bus service operates Mondays to Fridays to St Austell & Lostwithiel. This Truronian T24 service stops at Luxulyan School, the Kings Arms & Rosevale Gardens.
