St Nectan

In rolling countryside, two miles away from St Winnow, lies St Nectan’s chapel, being a chapel of ease which has been part of the parish since the 13th century. St Nectan’s churchyard is still much in use and provides the current parish burial ground and is a living churchyard.

St Nectan’s chapel survived the civil war but the top stories of the medieval tower were knocked off by Parliamentary cannon fire.

It was rebuilt and enlarged in the 19th century, and then fell into disrepair.

In the 1960’s parishioners carefully restored a reduced size chapel.

We would love to know how much you enjoyed your visit.
