St Winwaloe Church, Church Cove, Gunwalloe, Cornwall 24 April 2015
Last time I was here in 2012, the rain was horizontal and heavy and I promised a return to the aptly named "Church of the Storms". The detached bell tower can be seen behind the main buildings.

St Winwaloe was a 6th Century Breton saint. The church at Gunwalloe (a corruption of his name) named after him, is said to be one of the oldest in Cornwall; it is mentioned in the Domesday Book. What now remains of the church was built in the 13th and 14th Centuries, but it was heavily restored after storm damage, in 1869.
