St Winwaloe, Gunwalloe, Cornwall 24 April 2015
Showing the three hall layout typical of 15th Century to early 16th Century churches. There is no evidence it ever had a crucifix form.The detached bell tower is off picture to the right.

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. It has two fonts, a Norman font recovered from the graveyard, and a 15th Century font.

Yes, seems to be uncommon. Fascinating little church perched on the rocks.
