Gwennap Church Lych Gate, Sign and Rose

07 Jul

1   My brother and I started our family history pilgrimage today and went to Gwennap Church and Churchyard where the Martin stone that inspired Dad’s first novel, can be found.  The Lychgate is mentioned in the book, Jeremy Visick. The cross stitched kneelers in the Church were very beautiful and I give you a few here to enjoy.  Click on any photo for detail.

2   On the path as we left the Churchyard was this tiny shiny bit of evidence of a wedding at the weekend.



3   The next part of our journey was to find the first house we lived in when we first came to live in Cornwall when I was 6 and M, my brother, was 11. This beautiful rose was growing nearby. More of the houses in another post.
