St.Eval to St.Mawgan-in-Pydar

Turning right, I depart the sparse open ground of St.Eval.
With the tranquillity of the Cornish lanes, I pick up speed descending into the sheltered Vale of Lanherne, and the beautiful village of St.Mawgan-in-Pydar.
St Mawgan In Pydar church
Set in the Vale of Lanherne, the church is the jewel of St.Mawgan-in-Pydar. Endowed by the Arundells of Lanherne who lived here from the 13th to 18th centuries. It is now occupied by the Franciscan Sisters of the immaculate convent, Lanherne.
