Manaccan church

Manaccan 01St Manacca stands on a raised lann in the middle of the village. The first impressions are good with a lovely Norman door moulding and a west door to the tower.

Inside, the church feels almost lop-sided for there is a north aisle but only a south transept but it is light and harmonious. The three lancet windows at the east end add a simplicity to the whole.

The font is simple and probably a medieval copy.

Beneath one window is an unusual memorial: to William Gregor who discovered Titanium (Ti, Atomic number 22) here in Manaccan.
