'The church of the great wood', is derived from its situation in a district abounding with timber of ancient and luxuriant growth, and with groves of stately oaks and other trees.
This remote 13th century church has a complete medieval roof.
Originally a sailor's chapel of ease, it has stunning sea views.
The original font made of Preseli stone survives.
The church has seen significant restoration, including the creation of a chancel in the 19th century and repairs after storm damage in the early 20th century.
