Just off the coastal path, this is a beautiful church complete with rood screen. It is well worth a visit, as it is unique and something special.

I really enjoyed visiting this beautiful little church, the church itself has some beautiful features and is very old. The graveyard has some very old and interesting graves too. This church and the village of Tintagel is well worth a visit.

The church can be accessed along the cliffs or via a narrow road from the village. A fascinating church with some pretty windows. Very moving grave of a cabin boy in the churchyard.

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.

The lit of the baptismal font is an exceptional piece. There are interesting religious and folkloric artifacts all over the walls. The setting amid the graveyard is thought provoking, and the view of the sea...
