Sites:

  • Churches, Holy Wells and Stone Crosses in your locality which are dedicated to Cornish Saints are straightforward places to visit. Churches in particular may be worth a visit as they may have been built on the site of a chapel built by a saint or may feature relics or depictions of the saint e.g. in stained glass windows. Use the Curriculum Kernewek map to identify and visit places linked to your saint.
  • St Piran's Oratory (Grid Ref:SW 7717 5645) , near Perranporth, is good place to imagine the arrival of St Piran. For a guided walk of this site contact: Eileen Carter via email: eileen@st-piran.com .
