We both love visiting this beautiful old church, very tranquil inside and with a lovely churchyard. The monument to the lost sailors is particularly poignant.

Set in the Vale of Lanherne, the church is the jewel of the beautiful Cornish village of St.Mawgan, with its cricket ground, ancient inn, ford and convent. Yes, thats correct a convent but you're unlikely to meet anyone unless you buy some of their lovely...More
