Cubert, Cornwall

Cubert is a village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is three miles south-southwest of Newquay and is in the civil parish of Cubert. Once known as St Cubert, the village is dominated by the spire of its 14th century church which was enlarged by the addition of a south aisle a century later. The village is named after the Welsh missionary St Cubert who, as a companion of St Carantoc, brought the Christian faith to this part of Cornwall, and to whom the church is dedicated.
