I have said elsewhere that the granite churches of Penwith are built to a pretty standard pattern but that most have individual characteristics that make them worth seeing. I put this and St Levan jointly as my personal favourites.

The church dates back to the 13th century and its best known characteristic, a bench with a figure of a mermaid carved on its right end, probably dates to much the same time. Near this bench there is a squint, not common in granite churches, enabling anyone in the aisle to see 'rund the corner' into the chancel. There is a Norman font, (often juxtapositioned to a 20th century brush).

There are other interesting features inside and in the churchyard and it is worth buying a booklet.
