4/42 Tower of Church of Saint Feock
Detached church tower. Circa C13 restored and re-roofed circa 1875 by Piers St
Aubyn. Slatestone rubble with some granite quoins. Pyramidal dry Delabole slate
roof with cross finial.
Square on plan. Bell storey over basement. Orginal simple pointed arched doorway to ground floor east. Small slate louvered ventilator to each side of bell storey. C19 coved granite eaves cornice.
Interior has 3 bells thought to be cast with metal from 1 large Medieval bell. C19 timber work. The tower, it has been suggested, was built separate and at a higher level than the church so that it could be used as a look-out over Garrick Roads of the River Fal. This view now blocked by trees.
Information from the Church Guide by The Reverend E. J. Saunders.
