The author Winston Graham is recorded in our visitors book and he used the name 'Warleggan' as one of his characters in the Poldark novels!
You may think this quiet rural grade I listed church is unchanged since medieval times. In fact to build the current Tudor church at least one previous church was torn down and the stone reused in the new building. You can see reused stone with a dedication to St Meubred in the sedilia on the south side of the chancel.
Our wonderful 9th century cross was also found embedded in this church building. In 1942 a German bomb damaged the chancel windows. The very high quality replacements are by Christopher Webb.
In the north aisle don't miss the letter from Charles I to loyal parishes written in 1643 and the altar rail in the chancel in memory of the May brothers, sons of the rector both killed in WWI. Also the magnificent Glynn monuments in the south aisle.
