Ancient Church dominates headland

Ancient St Materiana's Church has a calm ambience and powerful presence on the Tingagel headland. It has been an important landmark for mariners heading up the Bristol Channel.

Lovely historic church on the cliff top; close to coastal paths and Tintagel Castle. Well worth a visit.

If you are in the town or at the castle this is worth a look. We spent time inside and around the cemetery which in itself was full of history. I did go home and research this place to better acquaint myself with what I experienced.

A lovely little church in a wild and dramatic setting. Lots of interesting tombstones in the churchyard, as well. Oh, and there's a sign in the long grass warning about adders!

It's a nice small church but nothing fantastic. The walk to get there from Tintagel castle is better and makes it a worth while walk.

Lovely well maintained church, but it is a place of God, so please do remember that when visiting, light a candle for a loved one.

The age of the church and the headstones just astounded us, well kept and so much to be discovered. Glad we went.
