Yesterday I described the journey to St Kew. We were going there on a mission! I have recently bought a delightful little book called “Cornish Curiosities” by Margaret Caine and Alan Gorton and aim to visit as many as we can. We started with a board in St James the Great Church in St Kew where there are Rules for Bell-ringers dating back to 1783. I love the words but even more I love the little drawings of the fat-bottomed bell-ringers. The whole Church and its Churchyard were fascinating, the church having been built in the 15th century on the site of a Chapel belonging to a monastery dating back to the 6th Century! It is well worth a visit should you ever be in the area. Click on any photo for more detail and the captions.
