Had lunch outside the church wall. The view was nice, the crows very entertaining. The church itself was small but has lovely stain glass windows and is interesting from a historical point of view.

We enjoyed the walk from Tintagel village back to our B&B by this church. It is one of Cornwall's Living Churchyards. The grasses and flowers between the graves were a buzz with bees and other insects as part of plan in Cornwall to 'bring back'...More
