Take the time to stop and have a look. Like many villages in the UK there is stunning church architecture everywhere. Some disappoint. If you are aware of your Spirituality you will find this very intriguing.

Located in the center of Lostwithiel and around the corner from the bridge stands this lovely peaceful church and graveyard. Beautiful stone work and stained glass. Worth a visit to view all the gravestones and inscriptions!

Another very gorgeous example of a Cornish church. Sadly closed on our visit, but lovely exterior and a graveyard with many old stones and many old stories.
