I only went to pick up a friend, but what a special building this is. Well worth visiting. Much larger than I thought it would be and old, with much of interest. If you are in the area I would definitely recommend you visit.

Quite awe-inspiring - the size was unexpected, and the sense of peace and well-being was tangible. There is a very interesting wall painting from hundreds of years ago, plus some very interesting pew-ends that are well worth seeing. Most enjoyable and informative.

I love these old churches even though I'm not religious. This church's cemetery is certainly in a lovely location. I like how it's got the Cornish flag flying outside.
