Towednack Church, Cornwall.
We have become used to finding churches locked up in this country. It was with great pleasure therefore to find one that wasn’t.
We were driving up to Zennor on Cornwall’s north coast when we spotted a tiny church just off the road. There was a track leading up to it so off we went to find a neat little car park and a beautifully maintained churchyard; and to our surprise an unlocked church.
Inside it is immaculate and very simple but with beautifully embroidered kneelers. There have been vicars of Towednack since before 1281 and the present incumbent has the problem of a weekly cost of £363 just to maintain the fabric of the building; I hope that lots of people drop in and enjoy the church and make a generous donation as they leave.
