Anyone unable to attend who would like to support this important initiative can do so by visiting;
There have been bells at the church in Lanteglos since at least 1549 but unfortunately they were silenced in 1992. It would be great if the excellent renovation work carried out on the church over the past year could be complimented (or hearlded!) by once more the sound of the Church Bells. It is thought that this might be the latest of a long line of events held in the grounds of the Lanteglos Country House Hotel from the days when the building was the Rectory associated with St Julitta's Church Lanetglos Nr Camelford, if anyone has any pictures in their attic of events from the past we would love the see them!
