Lanhydrock, Bodmin, Cornwall


When I did my mini-me update last week, I told you that I had been to see Lanhydrock, near Bodmin, and that I had photos to post.

The Church is part 15th century, but the house is only 17th century, with some 19th century repaires and additions ....


The house, was built on the site of a monestary, which is why it, and the Church are so close together-

Looking down on the house and Church, from the grounds -

The owners who lived here longest had 10 children, only one married, and the eldest son (an M.P.) died in WWI.  This memorial to him is in the Church -

Wow - at the latest cencus there were 171 people who lived in the parish - yet look how many died in WWI -
