    The Church is always locked outside of any service. Sadly too dangerous to leave it unlocked. Visitors are welcome. Just check times of services and nip in after one or ring the vicar and ask to visit.

    I do understand, of course. It’s just a bit frustrating when you are passing through and have maybe half an hour to spare, but glad to hear people can see the church at other times. Just as an aside, I reckon I’ve have come across more locked churches in Cornwall than any of the other counties I visit regularly, but I suppose many are more remote than elsewhere. Shame it has to be that way though.
