St Probus and St Grace is justly famous for its enormous ‘Somerset’ tower, the tallest in Cornwall and identical to that at North Petherton. This was apparently built after a little local difficulty between squire and congregation.
Simon Jenkins gives it a (generous) two stars. As well as the lichen-encrusted tower, he is inspired by the wonderful Georgian memorial to the Hawkins family which, he says, is more suited to Westminster Abbey than a village in Cornwall.
Everything about the church is grand: enough to bring tears to the eyes when thinking about how it will be maintained in a time of dwindling congregations.
