St Nectan's Chapel

A peaceful country walk away from St Winnow lies St Nectan’s chapel, dating back from the 13th Century.  This sleepy chapel, with no water or electricity, could tell a tale as it has survived civil war and damage due to Parliamentary cannon fire, being rebuilt, enlarged and then reduced again.

Now it is a greatly loved part of the Lostwithiel Benefice and chapel of ease to St Winnow church. In recent years it has once again hosted weddings and baptisms as well as the annual Dawn Service on Easter Day.

The churchyard is highly prized as a living churchyard, with a host of flowers and wildlife thriving there.
