(formerly listed as
Tower of St Illogan's Church)

Tower of former church. C14. Coursed squared granite. Square plan. Two tall
stages, diagonal buttresses to the west Bide of the 1st stage, with one offset,
small angle buttresses to the east side, and an embattled parapet. The 1st stage
has a small 2-centred arched west window of 2 cusped lights (the lower half
blocked) with a quatrefoil in the head and a hoodmould; the 2nd stage, set back
above a weathered offset, has a square-headed louvred lancet and a square-
headed belfry window of 2 arched trefoil lights with hollow spandrels and slate
louvres, and a hoodmould; and a hollow-moulded cornice to the slightly-
oversailing parapet, which has corner pinnacles finished with small crosses. The
north and south sides have large added clock-faces below the belfry windows, and
the south side has a square-headed lancet at the top of the 1st stage. The east
side has a blocked depressed tower-arch, above this the outline of the gable of a
former very small nave, and openings in the 2nd stage like those in the west
