St Piran’s Oratory

St Piran’s is an early Christian chapel with cemetery, located to the east of Perranporth. The monument acquired fame in the 19th Century when it was claimed at that time to be the oldest Christian building on the British Mainland. The monument has been covered in sand since 1980 and it has been decided to uncover the monument to assess its full condition and to undertake any necessary consolidation works. This project has involved careful and detailed agreement between all of the Stakeholders.
