Perranuthnoe churchyard

The churchyard in Perranuthnoe in the fog with one of a number of celtic cross gravestones.

The church here dates back to Norman times although the present day church is mostly 13th century onwards. There are however a few Norman features remaining such as the font.

Perranuthnoe church is one of three in Cornwall dedicated to the patron saint, St Piran. This is where the village gets its name 'Perran uthno' which means 'little Perran'. The church was also dedicated to St Nicholas in the 1850s, but this has since changed to St Michael.
