The church of St Pedrog
The church of St Pedrog
The church of St Pedrog was established on this steeply sloped site in the 6th century by the Cornish saint. It was ransacked by Cromwell's troops during the Civil War. The wooden screen was saved by the villagers who hid it near the beach but the stained glass window was destroyed. The broken pieces of the window were collected and found during restoration work in the 1860s when they were pieced together in a somewhat random fashion with Victorian glass and now form the west window.
The present building is largely the result of repairs and restoration carried out during the 19th century. It was then that the tower was added.
