The church of St Uny in Lelant is made entirely from granite and dedicated to Saint Uny (Euny) who is also the patron saint of Redruth. It can be easily seen from the other side of the Hayle estuary and lies next to the popular West Cornwall golf course. You can walk through the dunes to Porth Kidney beach.
Like many other churches in Cornwall, St Uny’s has a copy of a letter from King Charles thanking the people of Lelant for their support during the English Civil War.
Ah, Loyalists! 🙂 🙂 I could be happy kicking my toes in the sand around there, Jude. Have a good weekend! Peaceful and far from the madding crowds. 🙂
Stayed in the garden today! Managed to get the gravel area finished at last.
Bad back tomorrow! 😦
Bad everything! Back, knees, hips, ankles. I am falling to pieces!
Feet up then! Can that lad of yours cook? Or it’ll have to be a takeaway because lunch time will be busy. 🙂
Fortunately he can cook! Did a mean beef curry the other night and going to make a lasagne this week. Today will be fish pie!!
Sounds good! Got chicken in my slow cooker. 🙂 🙂
How odd to see sand in the foreground. You’ve composed this beautifully.
Thank you Meg. A church I need to take a look at once the grockels disappear!
Grockels? I can guess what it means, but did you invent it? Is it dialect? I’ve never heard it before.
It may be a south-western term – Devon maybe. I am an ‘incomer’ 🙂
Love the composition, placing the church in its environment, Jude.
Ah, those old Cornish Royalists. The certainly picked the wrong side back then. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
great composition, Jude.. Have a good weekend, and keep out of the way of the grockels!
Pirates in Penzance tomorrow Sue. I’d love to get some photos but can’t bear the thought of the crowds.
Oh, stay away!!
Luckily I was there two weeks ago, walked from St Ives along the coastal path 👍
Thanks Gilly 🙂
I agree – the composition is quite unique. The grassy fields behind the sand dunes is unexpected. I was left wondering where the water was … I’m assuming it’s behind you 🙂
Behind and in front – between the dunes and the church is a river.
Oh – I would never have guessed that!
No. It’s the way I framed it. I do have a shot with the river, so I’ll pop that up too.
