Stoke Climsland is a village and large parish in the centre of Cornwall on the border with Devon, in the River Tamar Valley. Stoke means "outlying farm". Climsland is the name of the manor, which in the Domesday Survey of 1086 was referred to as Climstone.
The church at Stoke Climsland was restored in the 19th century and is dedicated to All Saints.
The rugged Kit Hill, over 1000 feet tall, lies south of the parish. It was donated to the people of Cornwall by the Duchy of Cornwall, Prince Charles, to celebrate the birth of his son, William.
Kit Hill was a strategic place in the battle of Hingston Down and 1000 years later a local lord built a folly here to honour the event. The remains can still be seen. Now this is a great place for walking and there is a marked two mile circular route.
