The lych gate at Mawnan church dates back to 1881. In the centre you can make out the granite coffin rest where coffins would be placed before taking them into the church.

The inscription above the gate is taken from the 'Life Of Meryasek' and translates as 'It is good for me to draw nigh unto God'.
