Lovely church with quite a chequered history. Beautiful light and airy interior with unusual pews all fitted with doors. Church yard full of local interest.

The church is a short walk from Mousehole and is certainly worth a visit. The church yard has interesting gravestones including that of the last, reputed, Cornish speaker. Over the road there is another graveyard. Fascinating.
