Feature Sets

The church comprises chancel, nave with S porch and S aisle, and W tower. The tower is the earliest feature, with its plain, slightly pointed arch, and the chancel may have Early English origins (Historic England listing: 1105096). All other features of the church are Perpendicular. The church was restored in 1887 by Samuel Hooper of Hatherleigh. The only 12thc. feature is the font.


St Petrock was held before the Conquest by the canons of St Petroc in Bodmin. They continued to hold the manor after 1086.
