Photographer's Note

St.Enodoc stands among the sand dunes above Daymer Bay.Behind stands Brea Hill and nowadays the church is surrounded by the fairways of St.Enodoc golf course.

Why this little chapel is here is apparently a mystery.Some of the architecture can be traced back to the 12th century.

The chapel was renovated in 1864.An account of the restoration written in 1919-21 recently came to light,
''the sands had blown higher than the eastern gable, the wet came in freely, the pews were mouldy green and worm eaten and bats flew about, living in the belfry.''

Whoever restored the chapel did a wonderful job;it is visited by countless numbers of people these days.Services are held here each week.
The chapel is delightful inside, if only the walls could speak....and tell us more.

Notice the rather bent spire?

Thanks for looking.
