Blazey is a small town in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.
St Blaise is the civil parish in which St Blazey is situated; the
name St Blaise is also used by the town council. The hamlet of
Biscovey and the settlements of St Blazey Gate, Bodelva and West Par
lie within the parish boundaries.
Once an important engineering centre for the local mine and railway
industries, the parish is now dominated by the Eden Project.
St Blazey is situated 3 miles (4.8 km) east of St Austell, 1 mile
(1.6 km) west of Tywardreathand 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Par.
The town takes is name from the Armenian Saint Blaise and holds a
procession and service on his feast day, 3 February.
The Eden Project is located within the civil parish, and about a
mile and half (2 km) from the centre of the town. The large number
of visitors this attracts has led to the development of tourism in
the town. Other attractions, such as the Treffry Viaduct and the
Luxulyan Valley, are also close by, although actually within the
adjoining parish of Luxulyan.
