Church of the Storms

By dflory  
St Winwaloe's Church, Gunwalloe in Cornwall. It is the only church in Cornwall located on a beach. Its exposed position has made the church a target for the fierce storms that can sweep this stretch of the Cornish coast and has led over time to the church's popular nickname, The Church of the Storms. Though there was a church on this site in the 13th Century, the current building is probably 15th century in date.

A very lovely little church, and interesting to write you history of it too, David 😃 A delightful image captured here, like those moody looking clouds hanging over the church 👍
