Welcome to the Jacobstow Village web site.
This site has been designed to give you a brief introduction to the village and also point you in the right direction for any organisation, club or volunteer group in the village you may be interested in. The village lies just off the A39, approximately half way between Camelford and Bude and about five minutes drive from the beach at Crackington Haven - you can hear the sea on still nights! The Norman church of St James lies in the middle of the village and we also have two other churches within our boundaries. As we are in a rural situation the views and walks in and around the village are outstanding.
We are a small community with a lot of support from various sections of the village for different interests, as you can see from the navigation keys on the side of this home page. Contact details are included in the information, so please feel free to get in touch.
November marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, I’m sure you have already read the amazing article in your journal by Mike Quance. I know I’m going to visit the church and spend a moment at the memorial plaque to show my respects.
The OAP Christmas lunch is planned for Tuesday 4th December and if you would like to attend you really need to let Anne know on 230252 before the 20th November so that they can get the figures up together.
