Phillack Church Hall - 16 February 2019

Phillack Church Hall - 16 February 2019
Followers of my photostream will know that I punctuate the regular subjects with pictures of buildings I really like. There is no obvious definition of those but they usually bring to the present day an echo of the past not automatically conveyed by all such buildings.

Phillack Church Hall (1913) is curious in that it is quite distinctly in Hayle, 11 Copper Terrace to be precise. Phillack is a little way to the north and that, unsurprisingly, is where its parish church (St Felicitas and St Piala) can be found.

The saints' names too are worthy of note as Felicitas is, according to one of the limited sources available online, derived not from Felicity (of Rome) but the Cornish Saint Felec (or Felix). One source also refers to Piala as a saint martyred in Cornwall.
