St Anthony rivals its namesake on the Roseland, or St Just in Roseland for position. All are set in idyllic positions close to the water; two have boatyards almost attached; both are surrounded by greenery. Perhaps St Just shades it by the beauty of its planting but it is a close call as Gillan Creek is very secluded and peaceful.
St Anthony has many of the features of its neighbours even as far as the cat/dog flap in the west door but has a lower ceiling.
It has its unusual features, though. What looks like a rood stair was accessible from the outside; there is a small wood carving of Last Supper, said to be C14 or C15 and to have come from Newstead Abbey; there is a lovely modern engraved-glass window of bell-ropes; and there is a decayed medieval cross head in the churchyard.
One day we will approach this church by boat for that would be to do it real honour.
