Celtic quiet places

in Cornwall

About this project

This site includes details of all the churches in the Diocese of Truro that have registered with the Celtic Quiet Places project and a few other sites of historical interest.

During the period from the 5th to the 8th Century AD, young British men and women travelled through the Western lands of Britain and Gaul, taking the good news of the Gospel to all who would listen. As they travelled they found quiet, 'out of the way' places to stay, where they could spend time alone with Christ. Over the years churches were built in these special places. Many are still in isolated locations: some are now in the centre of busy towns. All provide an oasis of quiet which they would like to share with you.

Please visit them and find a special place for yourself.
