St Finbar's Church, Fore Street, Fowey
St Finbar's Church, Fore Street, Fowey
The saint is also known as St Fimbarrus, presumably a Latinised version. The church was built in 1336 to replace the Norman church that had replaced the Celtic one. The church was damaged by the French in 1457, and repaired in 1460 by the Earl of Warwick, when the clerestory and the N & S aisles rebuilt; they are now unusually wide. There is an exceptionally fine 15C carved wagon roof. The high W tower, richly decorated, is 16C. The S porch has open arches to the W and E and an eight-ribbed vaulted roof. Norman font of catacleuse slate. Hexagonal pulpit of 1601. Monuments to the Rashleighs. The church was used as a town hall for a period up to 1684.
