Ruan Major church

Ruan Major 05St Rumon is hidden away in a copse close to a farm. It is deserted and roofless, having been abandoned in the C20 century. It is wonderfully romantic, though, especially on a damp day when the wild garlic filled the churchyard with white.

Architecturally, it has been mucked about over the centuries with aisles removed and the porch moved. Today, it still retains the stained glass in the east window although its font and almost everything else useful has been moved to neighbouring churches.
