Pic Scam - Launcells

As I said, Mum and dad are visiting and this afternoon, we went to see the "Least spoilt Church in Cornwall" - according to Sir John Betjman - Launcells.  It is on the outskirts of Bude - and only has the vicarage within 2 miles of it, as the original village was wiped out by The Black Death.

As you can see - even Jiffy had a wander around the outside -

And this tomb is dated 1624 - and is stunning in an otherwise plainish Church -
