LaneastLannast” is a small Cornish village situated in North-East Cornwall about 7 miles west of Launceston (Google maps).  It is bounded on the North by the Parishes of Treneglos and Tresmeer, on the East by Egloskerry and Trewen, on the South by Altarnun, and on the West by St Clether.

The name comes from “Lann”, church site followed by a geographical reference to its position relative to the older St Clether site.  The main villages are Laneast and Badgall.

Laneast village sits above the valley of the River Inny and has many ancient rights of way which cross surrounding farm land and Laneast Downs.  These are fully maintained today providing many wonderful walks.

Beating the Bounds is an ancient tradition dating back to Norman and Saxon times and is still upheld today.
