‘The Barn’ at Golden: secret chapel of a Catholic martyr
‘The Barn’ at Golden: secret chapel of a Catholic martyr
Just opposite SW9246 : The Manor House, Golden - scene of St Cuthbert's arrest stands this sturdy old barn, part of the buildings surrounding the manor house where St Cuthbert Mayne was arrested in 1577 while he was working undercover as a priest ministering to the Catholics of that part of Cornwall. He used the barn as a secret chapel, and from the day of his arrest there, Golden has been a place of pilgrimage for Catholics. Even in recent times a group of them would meet here each year on 8th June, the anniversary of the saint’s arrest. Other elements of his sad story can be seen at: SS5937 : Shirwell: a Saxon settlement and the birthplace of a saint and martyr and SW8765 : The Manor House, St Mawgan (Lanherne) and its history and SW8865 : The Vale of Lanherne: St Cuthbert’s route to St Mawgan and SX3384 : Imprisonment and execution of a Catholic martyr 1577.
