St Just History: Ancient remains found in the areas around St Just ( such as Ballowall Barrow), give evidence of settlements in the region during the Neolithic Era some 5,500 years ago. The first church in the town dates from 596 AD, coinciding with the arrival of Saint Just, and the settlement, then part of the Manor of Kelynack was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086, and recorded as being held by one Godric.

Its medieval "playing place", Plain-an-Gwarry is situated in the centre of the town near to the parish church, it comprises a large round enclosure retained by a two metre dry stone wall, and is one of the few remaining "playing places" in Cornwall.

St Just later became one of the most important mining communities in Cornwall, supplying large quantities of copper and tin and though mining had taken place there for some 2,000 years, organised production began somewhere around 1820 with a large number of mines operating in the surrounding areas.
