SW9139 : Lych Gate and coffin stone

taken 7 years ago, near to Veryan, Cornwall, Great Britain

Lych Gate and coffin stone
Lych Gate and coffin stone
This is the lych gate at the entrance to the church of St. Symphorian and the view shows the traditional coffinstone where the coffin can be place to give the bearers a rest before proceeding to the church.

The name of the church is certainly unusual as it is only one of three churches in the United Kingdom dedicated to this particular saint. The other two churches are St Symphorian's Church, Durrington, Worthing, West Sussex and at Forrabury, near Boscastle, Cornwall.SX0990 : St Symphorian's Church, Forrabury
