St Enodoc Church - Rock

The diminutive St Enodoc Church near Rock. Made famous by the poet laureate, John Betjeman who is buried in the church yard.

In the 19th century it is reported that the church was almost completely swallowed by the sands of Daymer Bay. Apparently the only way into the church was through the roof! From this episode the church gained the nickname of Sinking Neddy

It's most distinctive feature is the crooked 13th century steeple
